Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Motivational interviewing (MI), Solution-focused, Strengths-based
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have worked with individuals of all ages and provided support in managing stress, anxiety, and depression. I focus on empowering individuals to recognize personal strengths in a supportive space and reach their full potential.
I am motivated to create an environment that is welcoming, compassionate, collaborative, and free of judgment. I offer an eclectic approach to therapy that pulls from a variety of treatment modalities, including solution-focused and strengths-based therapies, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. When entering therapy, you should expect an opportunity to feel understood, validated, and confident in discussing concerns without judgment. I aim to equip clients with tools they can use to successfully manage stressors in their personal lives. It takes courage to seek support and divulge personal experiences; my goal is to help you feel assured in your decision to reach out!

I was inspired by the stories and experiences of people close to me. Everyone deserves to feel heard, and validated, and live happier and healthier lives; I hope to be the person to help individuals achieve that.
While progress has been made, I believe stigma still exists surrounding mental health and mental health treatment. I want to help break that stigma and normalize therapy and its benefits.
I love traveling and seeing my favorite bands/artists.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, usually checking out new, local restaurants. I also love taking walks with my dog while listening to my favorite true crime podcasts.
I have a 2-year-old yellow lab named Allen! He is big, goofy, full of energy, and will eat anything and everything you put in front of him (edible or not!).
