I am a licensed Masters Level Clinical Social Worker. I strive to provide quality services to others that will enhance their lives by developing essential social, emotional, behavioral, and daily living skills in order for them to reach their full potential in a challenging society and within their family system.
I have been working with children and families for almost 20 years. My background is adolescent issues, men’s issues, and substance use/abuse, cognitively behavioral therapy. My experience over the span of my career has been in child welfare, residential programs, and in-home Counseling. My passion is working with adolescents and family. I strive to assist others in navigating family dynamics (e.g. communication patterns, physical/emotional abuse, and various issues that face families today, etc.).
I am also trained in school social work where individuals with special education needs are addressed through goal setting and behavioral intervention plans.
As a therapist, I want to partner with clients in a therapeutic milieu that is non-threatening and supportive. During this path, as we journey through life, we have pitfalls and mishaps, which impacts us in various ways. No matter if it was within your control or not, there are emotions surrounding around it. We will move through the path of healing together.
