More about me
Years in Practice: 7
I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 7 years of experience working as a family therapist and parenting coach. I have worked with children, teens, and adults in support of their coping skills as they try to adjust to various stressors relevant to their life span stage; whether that is academic stressors, work stressors, parent-child relationship conflict, and/or stressors related to family relocation.
My counseling style is engaging and interactive. I believe it is my job to show you the benefits of therapy through education on the process, but then I allow the client to lead the way through the 'content' of stressors and begin to take steps towards goals entirely from the client's perspective. I believe that psychoeducation around school systems and academic performance with parents can go a long way in improving the parent-child relationship and I like to remain open to collaboration with family members to support this progress.
If you are worried about taking the first step towards seeking outside support, don't! I can show you the ropes and help you expectations around therapy so that the experience is personalized and unique to fit you.
I look forward to working with you!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
