No two persons’ circumstances are alike, and I take great care to identify a client’s unique needs, background, and perspective. I am an LCSW who has been a Social Worker for more than 25 years. 15 of these have been spent as a therapist with HeartShare St. Vincent’s, where I provide a safe space that is welcoming and free from judgment.
I respect each individual’s beliefs, culture, and points of view as we work together to form a therapeutic relationship. I’m most interested in working with adults, but open to any client looking for a therapeutic environment.
I work toward processing complex feelings and establishing coping skills specific to a person’s experience by providing support and care to create a blended approach that is best for the individual being treated.
