As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I bring a keen awareness of how the varied elements of our lives—emotional and physical health, our environment, day-to-day realities, relationships—interact to impact our overall wellness. I bring this holistic approach to both counseling and care planning services. Whether you want talk therapy, guidance in planning for the future or simply aren’t sure where to start, I can help. I believe this one stop shop approach sets me apart from many other qualified practitioners who may focus only on therapy or only on finding and coordinating practical resources related to aging.
During my social work career, I have worked with older adults, their families and friends in community-based mental health, geriatric care management, health care and nursing home-based rehabilitation settings. In a counseling relationship I bring an integrative approach to best support you in reaching your goals for therapy. I strive to create an environment that you’ll find warm, welcoming, and free of judgment. I believe your treatment should be crafted with you, based on the particular challenges you want to address. I’ll draw on my knowledge of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT) to guide our work. Many of these methods use mindfulness—both as a tool and a way of life—as a means of coping with difficult emotions.
