Mental Health Counseling

I am a licensed clinical social worker who has several years of experience working with families, children, and adolescents. I believe in the power of connection to work through the barriers preventing people from being their best self. Utilizing a strengths based approach, I work with people to help empower them so they can navigate their anxiety, depression, family conflict, and other problem areas. Starting therapy can be a scary thing, and I provide a non-judgmental and compassionate space for people to be themselves. I have experience and knowledge in a range of therapeutic modalities from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, emotionally focused therapy, and trauma informed practice. In my down time, I enjoy listening to music, walking, meditating, and yoga. I look forward to helping you with your next step of growth and healing.

What is family therapy and how can it help?
Family therapy is a form of therapy that puts the family at the center and works with their strengths for positive change. Family therapy respects the importance of family connection, values, and traditions. There are many forms and styles of family therapy but most revolve around the idea that families want meaningful connections with each other. Emotionally focused therapy is an approach that helps family members improve relationships with one another while staying focused on the need for connectedness.
