I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Arizona with over 21 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. My passion is working with survivors of physical, sexual, verbal and/or emotional abuse. I also enjoy working with other types of trauma survivors, as well as people dealing with grief/loss issues, stress and anxiety or going through life transitions.
My clinical approaches include EMDR, inner-child work, trauma-focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, but I will use whichever approaches work best for you. My counseling style is caring, non-judgmental, respectful and interactive, with my top priority being your emotional safety and well-being. I believe in helping you identify and build on your strengths and working together as a team to accomplishing your goals.
I would love to hear from you to help, support and empower you along your healing journey!
