I am an LCSW with many years of experience. I have worked with the child and adolescent population, helping them with depression, anxiety, anger, self esteem issues, finding coping skills, etc. I have also worked with adult women who struggle with depression and anxiety, specifically related to pregnancy and postpartum issues.
In a session, I start by building rapport with each client to ensure that they feel comfortable meeting with me. I understand that therapy can feel uncomfortable, overwhelming, and intimidating at times, so I do my best make sure that the client feels welcome and that they are in a safe space to share. I am laid back and easygoing, but I will encourage and challenge each client when appropriate to help them meet their mental health goals.
I am a very calm, empathetic, open-minded and non-judgmental person and therapist. Clients come back to me because I am kind, patient, and have the ability to make them feel comfortable, but also have the tools necessary to help each client gain confidence and make progress on their mental health journey.
