Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Prolonged Exposure, Relational, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
I am a licensed clinical social worker and have over 10 years of experience working in a number of different settings with individuals of all ages. Currently, I offer services to adults 18+, with a heavy focus on maternal mental health and individuals managing life transitions and changes. I often see clients who are looking for an extra level of support to reconnect with themselves, learn healthy coping strategies, and process the anxiety, stress, and depressive symptoms that have begun to impact their day-to-day functioning. The reason for these symptoms can range from infertility, postpartum, a break-up, singleness, a move or job change, relationship stress, or simply preventative work for handling future challenges.
I use a collaborative client-centered approach in my work and am also well versed in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and incorporate that into a lot of my treatment. Gaining more insight and understanding into how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all connected re-establishes a sense of power and control over one’s life that anxiety and depression often make us believe is gone. I am also certified in working with perinatal mood disorders, and postpartum adjustment.

I love to travel, read books (both professional and fun), listen to podcasts, do pilates or other cardio workouts, spend time eating and drinking with friends at new bars and restaurants, watch football and go to professional games, paddle boarding or kayaking, creative endeavors.
Move my body. Some days it is just steps around my apartment, others it is a full workout. But intentional movement is so helpful to my overall well-being.
I love to be around people and get my energy from others. So going out with friends, talking to family and catching up, going to the pilates studio, talking with my husband. I also do like some down time and enjoy reading or being out in the sun. All of these are helpful ways for me to recharge when I need it!
My cat Walter is almost 7 years old. My favorite story is the way I was able to adopt him. He was only 6 weeks old and someone had dropped him in a dumpster. A mutual friend found him, could not keep him, and I was able to rescue him! I had never had a cat so it was a learning curve for us both but I cannot imagine my life without him.
