About Me

"There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in."

Leonard Cohen

Facing your most difficult emotions and struggles with a stranger is hard enough. Which is why I keep it simple. As an independent clinical social worker and certified drug and alcohol counselor, I am committed to meeting folks where they are at. I believe that true change must come from within, and sometimes the pain that causes some of the most challenging behaviors must be faced before that change can happen.

Therapeutic Approach

I help people living with a variety of mental health conditions.

‘You are looking for help to make your life feel more manageable and balanced, and you need a
compassionate listener with the skills and training to help you deal with your most painful feelings. I can help equip you with the necessary skills to strive toward mental wellness’

Common Treatment Methods I Utilize:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

As a Clinician II, I carried a 60+ person caseload. I provided case management services, crisis intervention, and individual therapy for a diverse range of people living with acute mental illness.

Eating Recovery Center

As a Program Therapist, I provided supportive therapeutic services, crisis management, group facilitation for partial inpatient, and residential clients living with co-occurring mental health diagnoses.

Frequently asked questions

  1. Reach out. Get in touch with me via email. I will get back to you as soon as possible approximately within 3 business days.
  2. Schedule a 10–20-minute complimentary phone consultation call. If you decide you want to work with me, I can get you set up with a client portal to fill out the initial paperwork. Once the initial paperwork is received, an intake appointment can be made.
  3. Schedule an Intake Appointment. For all new clients, an intake (60 minutes) is conducted at the first full session to gather information of one’s biological, psychological, and social history and presenting issues. This allows the therapist to get a full picture of the client in determining the best course of treatment moving forward. Therapeutic goals will be discussed collaboratively. *Note, this is the only appointment that feels like an interview. Moving forward, therapy appointments feel more natural and conversational.
  4.  Get a Recurring Time Slot. After the first appointment, I prefer to work with clients weekly or biweekly. This is important for building rapport. Also, having your appointment at the same time each week provides routine for building a good foundation of a new therapeutic relationship.

Yes! The intake process starts with a free phone consultation that lasts approximately 10-20 minutes. This allows us time to get to know each other and answer any questions you have about starting therapy.

All cancellations must be made at least 24 hours prior to the appointment time for no charge. Any late cancellations in less than 24 hour notice and no shows will be charged at the full rate. 

Following the intake, every session thereafter will be 55 minutes. Therapy is tailored to each individual’s needs, the presenting issue, and your short- and long-term goals. Together we will collaborate on how these goals can best be met. Due to the inability to predict your journey of growth and healing, determining the duration of treatment is ethically impossible.

Just yourself! All important information including forms, payment, etc. is collected through an online client portal prior to your first appointment.

At this time, I cannot accept insurance.  I am an Out-of-Network Provider, and do not hold a contract with any insurance carriers. 

Out-of-Network providers are paid directly by the client. Clients can submit claims and request for reimbursement to their insurance carriers after services have been rendered.
