Associate Clinical Social Worker| Therapist
MSW, LSWAA, SUDPt
My holistic approach to therapy is conversational and client focused. I provide a confidential space with support while you navigate feelings, experiences, and obstacles. Together, we will explore strategies and challenge thinking patterns. I integrate various evidence-based treatment modalities, depending on the area and impact. I like to blend mindfulness techniques with Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) interventions paired with
Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, and Trauma-Informed Care to facilitate all stages of change.
My experience has included working in the substance use disorder field and extensive training in Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation. I have worked with local Indigenous communities where I explored the magnitude and impact of generational trauma. Recently, I worked with high- risk teens in an educational setting.
My current focus is Adolescent to Adult | Anxiety, Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Relationship Issues. Through our collaboration, adversities can translate to strengths in your personal and professional life.
