I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience working in the Mental Health field in a variety of roles. I began my journey working in Residential treatment as a team counselor and later as a Therapist. I have also worked in a Day Treatment setting in the role of Program Coordinator. I received my Master of Social degree in 2004 and began working as a community Psychotherapist until 2009 when I began working as a School Social Worker. I feel this variety of experience adds to my ability to look at the full picture when working with children, teens, and families.
I enjoy working with toddlers through teens along with their families. I view my role in therapy as being one to listen to your concerns and struggles, offer a variety of tools to increase your ability to cope, and then support you in implementing the strategies you feel would work for you. I have experience working with ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, general behavioral struggles, and adjustment issues.
In my spare time, I enjoy being active with my family. I have two amazing boys who keep me on my toes! We enjoy camping, hiking, playing board games, and movie nights.
