registered associate clinical social worker #80250
supervised by paul kindman, lmft
I am extremely passionate about empowering individuals, couples and families to heal and live their best, most authentic lives. I strongly believe that each and every individual, regardless of background, ability, or beliefs, should have a safe space where they can feel comfortable being their true self. I know that sitting across from someone with similar experiences can help to build trust and promote connection, and am therefore deeply committed to holding space for people of color.
I deeply value the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist and pride myself on fostering a safe, judgement-free environment for all clients to share their truths. I privilege meeting the unique needs of my client and tailor my therapeutic approach and guide the work accordingly. I would love the opportunity to work with and help you move away from that which is plaguing you; toward a life of healing and thriving.
In my personal time, I enjoy crocheting, exploring new recipes to share with loved ones, and hosting game nights at my home.
