You've taken the first step towards healing, and that shows how brave and courageous you are. Be proud of yourself! This is a time for you to finally take care of yourself—your wants, needs, goals, etc.—which is something we so often throw to the wayside. Give yourself permission to focus on healing you. 



How I Approach Therapy

Do you wish someone could truly understand why you have been so anxious and unsure recently? Maybe you are experiencing self-doubt and lack of confidence in your abilities to make decisions. And you feel distant in your relationships. If you resonate with this, I am here to help you gain confidence and a sense of direction in your life. I will provide you a safe and judgment-free space where you feel free to be your authentic self. 

My therapy approach involves understanding the experiences shaping who you are today. Oftentimes anxiety, depression, disconnection from others, and low self-esteem are related to past experiences and relationships. Gaining insight into these formative years, relationships and experiences are an important part in your path to healing. My goal is to help you feel empowered to make decisions and experience long-lasting positive change.

As Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I enjoy working with new or expecting mothers, individuals and families affected by addiction, relationship issues, and those struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, body image, shame, and guilt. I also enjoy working with couples and helping them learn to effectively communicate, understand one another’s wants, needs and love languages. I utilize a wide range of therapeutic techniques tailored to each individual’s needs. To start therapy with me, please reach out today to schedule a 15-minutes consultation with our intake specialist.
