Hello! I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker. I have a passion for working with Children, Teenagers, Adults, Elderly and Disabled individuals. I specialize in working with anyone who has experienced traumatic events or has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am a certified EMDR Therapist. EMDR is a type of therapy that helps people heal from emotional and bodily distress after experiencing a traumatic life event. I am also trained in Play Therapy, which is used with children. Other areas of interest include: addictions and compulsions, anxiety, attachment, communication problems, couples and marital counseling, depression, divorce issues, grief or loss issues, pain, Play Therapy, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Trauma and others.
I have worked in a variety of work settings including hospitals, not for profit agencies, Hospice, and Community Mental Health. I transitioned into private practice in 2017. I have worked collaboratively with teams of professionals through the health system, schools, other area agencies and medical systems.
