Personal Statement

I offer my clients a range of services as a licensed clinical social worker, marriage and family therapist, and addiction counselor. I have over 25 years’ experience in the mental health profession, including work with addictions, criminal justice social work, and trauma informed care. I am a trained substance abuse professional (SAP), promoting recovery and preventing relapse.

The focus of my practice is to encourage self-discovery and foster healthy relationships with individuals, couples, and families. I provide all my clients with individualized care, integrating a variety of methods that meet specific needs and desires. I am especially interested and talented in using solution focused therapy, mindfulness-based practices, distress tolerance techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, adaptive information processing, and helping others with effective communication and emotional regulation.

The majority of my clients struggle with PTSD and dealing with traumatic experiences. I specialize in trauma informed interventions, encouraging growth through creating effective coping skills and communication techniques. I am a trained EMDR clinician and can assist healing in clients with depression, anxiety, and a number of other mental and emotional health challenges.
