I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 21 years experience focusing on the elderly population. My experience also includes working with many demographics including ages 13 and up. I have worked in a setting that includes those living with severe mental illness as well as those struggling with anxiety, depression, past trauma and life adjustment. I was a Social/Activity/Dementia Consultant in nursing homes for approximately 20 years before getting Ovarian Cancer and needing to get off the road. I now work in a private practice setting. In my sessions, I focus on using evidence-based techniques such as DBT, CBT, EMDR and Brainspotting in order to help clients improve in the areas of Anxiety, Depression and PTSD. My counseling style is very client led and focuses on teaching clients skills to utilize on their own to enhance their ability to improve their mental health. Many of my clients have said, “you have changed the way I think and that has changed everything for me”. I take the time to listen to my clients for themes and underlying issues they may not be aware of. For me, it’s an honor to be allowed in people’s lives at such a vulnerable time. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my husband, my sons and my dog. I love to sit on my front porch swing and be outside. I love the water – the ocean, lakes or pools. My favorite quote is “you will reap what you sew but gardens don’t grow overnight”. It’s based from scripture but with my added ending.
