In over 10 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have developed an interest in working with issues related to anxiety, depression, grief, somatic symptomology, and acute/complex trauma. I work with a variety of therapeutic approaches including Attachment Theory, Psychoanalytic Theory, and body-focused therapies such as EMDR and Mindfulness. These approaches help explore ways that early experiences affect the way we view ourselves and the world.
I appreciate the unique set of life experiences that each client brings, and honor this by avoiding preconceived notions about them and their concerns. I seek to create a safe and confidential space through the practice of empathic listening and non-judgmental acceptance where clients can sort through confusing thoughts and emotions. This process leads to greater self-awareness and the confidence to engage more fully in the world.
