I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at Foresight. It is very normal to feel fear and anxiety when seeking help, but if you take the next step we can work collaboratively to help promote growth and healing moving forward. I utilize a strength based approach and a solution focus model to help strengthen the skills you already have while developing more effective tools to manage current stressors. Throughout my career, I have learned the importance of self-determination, meeting clients where they are and providing a safe space to process emotions and unresolved issues. I have been working in the mental health field for approximately ten years with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, addiction, identity issues, low self-esteem, relationship challenges, struggling with life transitions and many more areas. I have experience working with various populations such as: young children, teenagers, adults, foster youth, probation youth, and elderly adults. I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness, Harm Reduction, Seeking Safety and other non-traditional modalities that can be incorporated in therapy as needed depending on what clients find the most effective for themselves.
