Introduction

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker dedicated in assisting adolescents and young adults discover their most authentic self. I have always been passionate about the inner psychic workings of the mind and how it relates to our relationships. Moreover, my work always incorporates a Psychodynamic Therapy approach which examines how early experiences and relationships contribute to our current mental health functioning. Additionally, I have great enthusiasm for facilitating my Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) group for all ages. DBT has been demonstrated to help people improve awareness of self, relationship dynamics, ability to manage emotions and cope with stress. If you are interested in treatment services please don't hesitate to request an appointment for a free 15-minute consultation.
