My philosophy on care is to uphold the values and integrity of the therapeutic alliance through support, compassion, empathy, and education. A dedicated and educated provider communicates a level of care that allows clients the opportunity to find healing and support throughout their unique journeys.
My focus and motivation has always been working with children and families. My experience working with survivors of abuse, trauma, domestic violence, substance use, mood disorders, homelessness, and many others, has shaped my passion for social work and therapy. I strive to tailor each individual and family with a unique approach, demonstrating my commitment and appreciatIon for their personal experiences and values. I strongly believe in ethics and fostering a therapeutic relationship that provides a safe space to share sensitive and personal information while using my strengths-based approach to work through challenging feelings or beliefs. When individuals and families are ready to work through their feelings associated with trauma, grief, mental health needs, and so much more, they can find comfort in knowing that a compassionate and dedicated clinician is waiting for their call!
