I have been working in the human service field for the past 20 years. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate (LCASA). I have experience working with diverse populations in various treatment settings including the geriatric population, (over 65); military families, active duty members & veterans, children, adolescents, adults and individuals diagnosed with immunodeficiency disorders. Some of the challenges I had the privilege of assisting my clients with over the years relate to: depression, anxiety, substance use, self-esteem, oppression/privilege issues pertaining to race; homelessness, anger management, trauma, and co-occurring disorders. I love to help my clients accomplish their mental wellness goals. Based on each client's preferences and needs, I often employ the following treatment modalities: Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalytic Therapy, Gestalt therapy, Play/Music/Art therapy, and Transactional analysis.
