Overwhelmed with life's challenges? Feeling depressed or stressed out? Do your relationship problems seem impossible? Are your children out of control? Is your child experiencing stress and frustration dealing with friendships/family relationships? Are teachers and family members saying your child's behavior is out of control? Do you wish you could talk to your parent or child without yelling/fighting? As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I provide mental health services to individuals, children, adolescents, families, and couples. I specialize in the treatment of wide variety of problems and challenges, including, but not limited to: stress management, anxiety, depression, anger management and trauma. I have 15 years of mental & behavioral health experience working with children, adolescents and their families in residential, crisis stabilization, home and community-based settings. I work with adults to develop satisfying relationships, achieve work-life balance, & use coping skills for stress & anxiety. My work with families focuses on improved communication, so that all family members feel heard & solutions to problems are reasonable. I also teach families to discuss issues without arguments, establish fair rules & boundaries, so family-life rewarding. I also help children resolve issues such as: peer pressure & bullying, teen and toddler tantrums, sibling rivalry, self-esteem and behavioral problems at home and school. I use a lot of expressive therapies with children and adolescents. This includes art, sand tray & play therapy. All of the above mentioned are small changes that will have a BIG impact on your life. I also offer Walk & Talk therapy which is an alternative to traditional therapy and is offered outdoors. Being active during the session will help you open up and relax, in a natural environment. We walk at a pace that is comfortable to you. My style is genuine and straightforward, and I am mindful and sensitive to the spiritual and cultural needs of my clients. I am a warm, friendly, and authentic person who is comfortable and easy to be with. I use an eclectic mix of therapy styles based on each individual's strengths to help develop an understanding & awareness of the issues that are preventing them from meeting their maximum potential. I offer a non-judgmental environment for personal exploration of issues that facilitates reconciliation & healing, both with individuals, couples & families.
