Hello, I am so happy you have decided to take time for yourself! I have been a licensed clinical social worker for 25 years and I love helping people. My life experiences have taught me many things; one very important lesson is the impact of compassion and empathy. I strive to incorporate these qualities into my practice techniques. I also believe change is possible and feel that mindfulness techniques along with learning to understand and manage your thoughts and emotions can be powerful tools to help cope with challenges in life. I am a person-centered therapist, focusing on your goals and strengths. I am DBT informed and often use ACT and CBT techniques in my practice style. I look forward to meeting you, working with you, and walking with you as you take steps toward personal growth and healing.
