More about me

Licensing: LCSW, CEAP, MAC
Years in Practice: 17

Hello, thank you for reading my site. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 17 years of experience working with clients in the public and private sector. I have provided supportive therapy to clients dealing with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD , substance abuse/dependence, relationship issues, parenting problems and career challenges. I also have helped people who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and engaging with a non-judgmental approach , showing sensitivity and compassion to help clients have a successful therapeutic experience. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing and client centered therapy to help clients meet their goals. I will tailor our interactions to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to pursue a more fulfilling life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower 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.
