I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who believes that in a world where the importance of building up all facets of our life – education, work, family, friends- our emotional and mental health are not always attended to in the same ways. Your mental health is just as important- if not more! Whether you are looking to improve your general emotional wellbeing, communication skills, self-improvement or very specific challenges, therapy is a logical way to start. Congratulations on taking these first steps.
I approach all therapeutic interactions as a trauma-informed therapist, as a SC Victim Service Provider, with extensive experience in IPV/DV and trauma (including military). I also have a Graduate Certificate in Drug and Addiction Studies.
I have specialized experience in:
EMDR for Trauma & Addiction
CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), SFBT (Solution Focused Brief Therapy)
Depression and Anxiety
Substance Use and Addiction
Domestic/Intimate Partner Violence
Military & Veterans Treatment
Stress Management and Coping
Interpersonal Effectiveness and Relationships
I believe in the inherent strength of clients themselves, and am here to assist you to best amplify those strengths to support recovery, empowerment and betterment of you. I approach therapy in a multi-faceted way that meets you where you are , and gives you the opportunity to have a safe space and respect where you can be your genuine, true self.
