Pronouns - she/her/hers
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I work from a trauma-informed, harm reduction perspective. Research and experience indicate a strong link between trauma and coping behaviors that can make life more complicated.
I specialize in working with people with a history of trauma or adversity. I use a variety of approaches in therapy, based on individual needs and preferences as one size does not fit all. Some of these approaches include: Interpersonal therapy, CBT, DBT, EMDR, and Narrative Therapy.
In addition to offering therapy, I provide supervision for therapists-in-training. If I am unable to work with you, there are clinical interns and non-independently licensed practitioners who provide care under my license. These therapists share an interest in the types of therapy I do, and we work together to ensure they are engaging in best-practices.
When it comes to therapy, the relationship is the priority. I believe people are resilient and utilize a strengths-based approach that seeks to affirm and build on personal resources. Let's work together to identify and address patterns that are stealing your joy.
