As a therapist that believes all people have the power to heal, I take a collaborative approach to individual sessions and work to meet you where you are. It is an honor to hold healing space with clients. I utilize an eclectic approach that centers on psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, dialectical behavioral therapy, insight oriented, and supportive interventions. Humor is incredibly important to me in my practice when appropriate :)

Becoming a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) has been one my greatest accomplishments. I know through my own process of coming up in the field what great supervision looks like and how supervisors fail. It is part of my passion in this field to work with LSWs and assist them in obtaining their clinical license. I have years of experience with clinical supervision and teaching graduate social work courses. My style is collaborative in nature. If you are an LSW with similar therapeutic styles, reach out... let's chat!
