Counselor Details

As a graduate with a Master of Social Work, I now have over eight years of clinical and non-clinical experience working with families. I have explored, analyzed, and used effective interventions for families, couples, and individuals based on what I've experienced as a mother, nanny, child behavior specialist, social worker, and mental health therapist. Additionally, I specialize in working with children and adolescents struggling with defiance, neuro-typical difficulties/differences, trauma, and general anxiety/depression as well as recently postpartum mothers and mothers in general. I also work with adults and I believe trust and rapport are the foundational elements that make a therapeutic journey successful.
