I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 10 years of clinical experience. I have experience and training working with adults and older adolescents (ages 15 and over), and I have a special interest in working with young adults and people coping with family stressors.
My previous work experience includes inpatient and outpatient behavioral health and addiction treatment settings, as well as community-based work. I have worked at an inpatient psychiatric hospital and a partial hospitalization program, where I primarily worked with adults and families experiencing crises related to depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and trauma. Most recently, I worked at a women’s residential treatment center, where I supported women in their recovery from addiction and trauma.
I believe that the most important factor in therapy is the relationship we share. I will work hard to create a space where you can feel safe, heard and supported – but also challenged. I balance warmth and compassion with authenticity and a direct communication style. My approach is strengths-based, solution-focused, and goal-oriented so that we stay focused on helping you meet the objectives you’ve established for therapy.
I am in network with Aetna and Anthem BCBS, and in the process of getting contracted with Tricare.
I offer appointments as follows:
