Empowering you with the tools and confidence you need today

Feeling stuck? Feeling like you're not in the place you should be in your life right now? I understand that feeling completely and I'm here to help. Sometimes life doesn't turn out the way we hope and we get stuck feeling down, hopeless, worried, or alone. I will help you recognize that it's OK to have these difficult feelings...and even normal! When we learn to acknowledge and accept our feelings we can begin to move through them and find meaning and joy in our lives again. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing therapy via telehealth throughout the state of Arizona as well in-person sessions in Scottsdale, Arizona. I have had the honor of working with adults, youth, and families over the past 16 years in the behavioral health field, community mental health, and the child welfare system. I work with individuals navigating all life transitions including young people entering adulthood, transitioning into college or work life, relationships, parenting, women's issues, grief, trauma, and more. I utilize a person centered and strengths based approach, meaning you are the expert on your own life, and I am here to empower and assist you in finding the tools you need to be successful. I also utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help you let go of negative beliefs about yourself and live the life you desire and deserve. For more information on ACT please visit: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapy-types/acceptance-and-commitment-therapy For more information on EMDR please visit: https://www.emdria.org/about-emdr-therapy/ Additionally, I provide clinical supervision to other therapists in Arizona.
