Therapy should be like the fun middle school trips you we used to get excited about and less like your least favorite vegetables, which you have to eat because their good for you. I obtained my Masters Degree from the Smith College School For Social Work and I am licensed in the District of Columbia as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW). I have been working in the mental health field for over 12 years and enjoy it a great deal. I have experience working with clients that have experienced Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, Trauma, Grief and Loss and with clients that have just felt lost. My therapeutic approach is psychodynamic, solution focused and client centered. This means I am trained in several different kinds of therapy, which I use interchangeably to address the specific issues/concerns of each client.
As a therapist I consider myself a guide that helps others navigate life’s up and downs such as, love, loss, illness, work stress, relationship conflicts and life transitions. My hope is that our time together will help you get to your destination safely and with peace of mind. We will begin by establishing clear and attainable treatment goals which will we revisit every few weeks to make sure we stay on the right path. We will discuss effective and maladaptive coping skills. We will celebrate the small steps forward and learn how to keep moving forward when the journey feels long and the body is weary.
My specialty areas include:
• Relationship concerns
• Life Transitions (Adjustments)
• Anxiety Disorder/Depression
• Grief and Loss
My theoretical approach is:
• Solution Focused Therapy
