I come from a background of working as a Holistic Health Practitioner for over 25 years before becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My passion is in helping to empower people towards self-actualization. I work with clients in understanding and identifying the underlying issues that may be holding them back. Through working in a collaborative relationship, I help clients work on solutions to break through those barriers that may be keeping them from optimal functioning. Utilizing Narrative, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and Psychodynamic treatment models, I work with clients in resolution of current crisis or past traumas, ADHD, and issues involving loss and or low self-esteem. My working background is in complicated psychiatric case management, medical social work in hospitals, Clinical Therapist Post Graduate Internship, Adult Protective Services Intern, Ombudsman for Long Term Skilled Nursing Facilities and Hospice.
