“Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.” – Buddha
I am a licensed clinical social worker dedicated to providing therapy in a confidential, safe environment. I see myself as a partner in the therapeutic process. We are a team. My role is not to give advice but rather to assist you in deciding what the best course of action is for you. You are driving the bus. I am a passenger, asking questions and providing information that will help you find the answers and ultimately achieve your goals.
