I am an experienced Clinical Social Worker. I have worked for several years with children, youth and families. I provide therapy that is culturally sensitive because I recognize that people from different back grounds have different values, practices and beliefs, and I am sensitive to those differences. I also try to understand and accept each client in order to create a treatment plan that is appropriate to meet their unique needs.
As your therapist, I will provide you with a safe, judgement free space where you can share your story, learn more about yourself, achieve your goals and improve your health. I will also teach you skills to address symptoms on your own which will last after therapy ends. So if you are willing to do the work, therapy can be rewarding.
I offer online therapy through a secure platform or therapy by phone. Online therapy is not only a great option for those who are unwilling or unable to leave the safety of home, but it’s also a great solution for those juggling multiple responsibilities, such as parenting, teaching and remote work.
