Social Worker-Clinical

Biography

I am an energetic and creative social worker with a passion for holistic health. It is my belief that one must consider the whole person, as well as their environment, to best help someone reach their goals. As a social worker I construct a therapeutic environment for clients to share anything they need to; I value therapy as a safe space. In my practice I take a strengths-based approach, working with clients to build together on the amazing strengths they already have as well as to add new skills to improve their well-being.

When I think of what inspired me to pursue a career in mental health, I distinctly remember the day I learned about social workers. I was a loud, energetic seven-year-old with an inclination toward social leadership and compassion for my peers. A teacher shared about the career and I was captivated.

I completed my graduate degree in Clinical Social Work in 2011 and received independent LCSW licensure in 2013. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy with additional continuing education in the effects and treatment of trauma. I have had the opportunity to work with people of all ages from children to adults.
