Clinical Social Worker/Therapist -
I work with adults and specialize in substance use disorder counseling, including abstinence and harm-reduction methods, as well as mood disorders including bipolar, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. I use a holistic approach to provide a non-judgmental space to discuss family dynamics, work stress, sexual health, and major life events. I encourage a sex-positive and LBGTQ+ safe space in all communications. I am sex work-affirming and kink/poly aware. I work within a relational, trauma-informed framework, understanding that we bring our whole experience with us to therapy. As a social worker, my approach to therapy is informed by the client’s needs, meeting the client where they are in their process with therapy, and encouraging clients to share and build rapport at their own pace. We may discuss cognitive behavioral or dialectical behavioral techniques, and mindfulness techniques to achieve goals.
