Making a decision to go to therapy is the first hard step; choosing the right counselor in the middle of difficult circumstances can be challenging. I'm thrilled to return to private practice a couple evenings a week treating individuals and couples 17 years and older. My philosophy is that I am not the expert of the solutions but an expert at asking questions and making observations that assist people with discovering their own solutions. I enjoy the process of assisting people through the complicated menagerie of life happenings to finally finding peace of mind. I do have certifications in evidence-based therapies but thoroughly believe that one size does not fit all. The art of therapy is wrapping my skill set and wide range of knowledge around the unique needs and beliefs of each individual and couples I treat.
I have been practicing in the field of social work since 1990 and have provided clinical post-grad social work since 1997. My licensure, specialized training and certifications include: Licensure: Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT); Specialized Training: Externship in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT); Certifications: Integrated Behavioral Couples Therapy(IBCT); Prolonged Exposure (PTSD treatment); Group Therapy.
I wish you wellness as you seek assistance in the most tender parts of your life story. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate contact me
