I am a licensed independent clinical social worker. I received both a BS in psychology and an MSW from the University of Southern Indiana.
My approach to therapy is to provide a non-judgmental, supportive, collaborative environment where clients feel safe to process and work through their issues. The theoretical orientations that I generally work from include; cognitive therapy, narrative, client centered and mindfulness based approaches. In summary, my approach always keeps the needs and best interest of the client as the guiding principle in the therapeutic process.
As a licensed independent clinical social worker in the State of Washington, I work with individuals and couples as they try to deal communication struggles and issues that may present as problems in their relationships. In addition, I also have experience working with children and adults who present with a wide range of mental health and adjustment issues.
Among my areas of expertise are the treatment of:
Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD)
Work or career challenges
Grief and loss
I help clients identify their personal strengths and build resilience to improve the overall functioning and quality of their lives. Certain patterns of behavior result in increased stress, frustration and even depression. It can be overwhelming when these patterns of behaving and thinking impact both the personal and work spheres of your life. Acknowledging issues and deciding to seek the help of a trained therapist is the first step on the path to enjoying a healthier, less stressful and more satisfying life. I would be happy to guide support you through your journey.
