What if we harbor ideas about others and ourselves that have outlived their usefulness? We can’t change what has happened in the past, but what if we can change how we feel about those events today? As I explore narrative therapy and cognitive behavioral paradigms with you, part of that process is to ask: What if it is possible to change and reframe the storyline we internalize about ourselves in a way that helps us make sense and discover answers? My aspiration is to assist you to identify strengths and reframe your story to move forward into a more productive, empowering, and positive self-concept. It is possible, and I look forward to helping you discover and navigate your way. To paraphrase Mahatma Gandhi: Be the change you wish to see in the world.

As a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker I have provided therapeutic services in a wide variety of settings and with a broad range of clients. I believe in a client-centered approach and unconditional positive regard in my approach to therapy. I have worked with Indigenous communities in which we work toward healing from unresolved historical and intergenerational trauma. My practice embraces working with adult clients from all racial, cultural and economic backgrounds.
