Biography – “Our work together will result in a customized “tool box” of self-management skills to equip you when life throws you a curve ball.”
My therapeutic relationships are built with adults in the areas of anxiety, depression, job difficulties, new or chronic illness, organ transplantation or heart failure/disease, and life changes (dealing with an aging family member, college students meeting the demands of academics or adjusting to “life away from home,” etc.).
I also work with older adults experiencing transition after the loss of a spouse or friend, diagnosis of dementia, moving from home, loss of independent activities of daily living, or general feelings of anxiety or depression. Additionally, I value the opportunity to walk alongside and support couples experiencing chronic illness of a child.
As a clinical social worker, I help clients discover their own power to create self-transformation, and as your therapist, I see myself as a tool to help you discover your own power to create change. Our work together will result in a customized “tool box” of self-management skills to equip you when life throws you a curve ball.
Let’s start discovering your true potential, so you can keep creating your best life story. I look forward to working with you.
