I am a clinical social worker who treats people with a wide range of needs, from difficult mental and emotional needs relationship problems, work-related stress, or life changes. Often, my clients first indicate they feel in distress or stuck and want therapy to relieve their distress and improve their quality of life so they can move forward. Their goals often include improving their mental wellbeing, dealing with difficult situations, developing healthier relationships, and achieving greater personal fulfillment in their daily life.
I specialize in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. ACT is an evidence-based therapy for people with mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, and it helps with work, school, and relationship problems.
In addition, my therapeutic orientation involves care planning that integrates key health-related behaviors, including the promotion of routine physical activity, quality sleep practices, healthy diet, and engaging in behaviors that cultivate a strong sense of home, connection to friends and family, and purpose in their lives. These factors significantly impact people's mental health and overall well-being.
Additionally, having completed the Gottman Institutes' advanced training, I offer couples counseling to those seeking to build relationship skills and or prevent a break in their relationship. I use the Gottman Method, an evidence-based approach that helps couples improve communication, increase emotional intimacy, and strengthen friendships. This approach is effective in helping couples with a wide range of relationship issues, including infidelity, communication problems, and conflict management difficulties.
