Credentials and Certifications:
Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW)
Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)

Teletherapy and currently, in-office sessions still offered (03/20/2020).
When life seems a bit too much, it is time for a healthier balance. I know seeking professional help may be challenging. My goal as your therapist will be to provide an open and accepting place where you can progressively build on your strengths and overcome that which holds you back. I am experienced in working with clients of diverse backgrounds. Additionally, as a Board Approved Clinical Supervisor (BACS), I provide clinical supervision for social workers pursuing licensure.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (since 2003), seasoned in counseling children, adolescents, adults, and couples. I help people find their way through difficult times regarding relationship conflicts, intimacy and sexuality issues, work/school concerns, and parenting/family issues.
If you have experienced recent or past trauma, I can assist you through the distressful emotions and physical responses, and provide you with enhanced coping techniques.
