I work in person and online with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families to treat anxiety, anger, depression, and self-destructive behaviors.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Qualified Substance Abuse Professional, Advanced Addiction Counselor, and Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work, I have over 24 years of experience in the areas of relationships, mental health, eating disorders, substance abuse, and psychotherapy. Before starting my own practice, I was a psychotherapist and urgent care counselor at Austin Regional Clinic (later named Integrated Mental Health). Prior to that, I was the social services director at Palmview Psychiatric Hospital in Lakeland, Florida. I have assisted victims at the Center for Battered Women, and have worked with adolescents and adults in overseas military schools and other psychiatric settings.
I have a wealth of volunteer experience working with the elderly, high risk populations, and supervision.
I have vast experience counseling clients with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse. My background enables me to be an extremely effective social worker who is comfortable counseling diverse groups of people.
