I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have nearly 20 years of experience in the mental health/social work field working with individuals and families that range from adolescents and adults. I specialize in several modalities such as; CBT, trauma focused therapy, behavioral modification, and motivational interviewing styles. I work with teens and adults. in working with individuals and families with histories of trauma (PTSD), divorce, foster adopt/stressors and issues, depression, anxiety, ADHD, anger, self esteem, and several other issues.
My approach is to be honest and upfront with clients. I do not expect you to be perfect, but I do expect you to try. I encourage open and honest communication about what is working and not working for you. My therapy style is firm but respectful and I am open to changing things up. I am eclectic in my style and use techniques from various models such as; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), trauma focused therapy, behavior modification, and motivational interviewing.
I feel the reason that clients keep coming back for follow up visits is due to the fact I am open and honest with them, always encouraging them to be their best and try their best and willing to meet them where they are.
