Therapeutic Approach and Background

image1

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Qualified Supervisor

I offer a compassionate, gentle and dynamic approach  to psychotherapy. My style is authentic, nonjudgmental and  supportive. I work with individuals in various kinds of distress to both relieve suffering and address the issues causing pain. I work collaboratively with patients to improve self-awareness, develop insight, and learn new ways of coping with life stressors to  facilitate healing and growth. Services are provided both in-office and online.

Professional Experience

For the past 25 years I have worked in a variety of mental health  treatment settings. I have been in private practice working  primarily with adults and adolescents for the past 9 years. 


I worked with individuals in crisis struggling with severe depression,  bipolar disorder, anxiety, psychosis, borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, suicidality and self-injurious behaviors.

I have provided confidential online counseling since 2009.
