LIC NO. 97830

I am a licensed clinical social worker with seven years of experience providing psychotherapy to adults, families and groups. I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and stress management related to life transitions. Additionally, I specialize in working with polyamory and folks in open relationships. My approach to clients is rooted in harm reduction, and trauma informed care. I am passionate about mental health and social justice. I utilize a relational approach, meaning I value the therapeutic relationship as the most important for growth in therapy. I take an eclectic approach and individualize based on the presentation of clients. Modalities that I utilize are DBT, CBT, ACT, seeking safety, and motivational interviewing.
