LCSW Providing Individual Psychotherapy
As no two individuals are the same, I tailor my work with each client to address the challenges unique to you. As Ward Foley has stated, “We are not given a good life or a bad life. We are given a life. It is up to us to make it good or bad.” I am glad that you found me and have taken the courageous first step of being here! When working with clients, I focus on their strengths and their ability to create lasting change for themselves.
I began my career working in both inpatient as well as outpatient settings. I completed my Master’s in Social Work at the University of South Carolina. I have worked with a wide range of populations facing a wide range of issues for over seven years- from hospice to trauma, crisis and substance abuse counseling in an inpatient setting, to most recently in the past two years practicing individual counseling in a purely outpatient setting. I am skilled in utilizing approaches: Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Cognitive processing theory for trauma (CPT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), as well as crisis management. I am very comfortable working with anyone from 18 years and up, LGBTQ friendly. I specialize in emotional and physical regulation to help manage difficult situations, perinatal (pre, current, and post pregnancy) depression, anxiety, grief/loss/bereavement, prior trauma/ re-experiencing of traumatic events, geriatric focused counseling, life transitions, and general stress.
I am ready to help you find ways to navigate through depression, anxiety, isolation, relationship stress, addiction, prior trauma, and many other factors that may be keeping you from thriving. You don’t have to be alone on this journey. I will help equip you with new tools that will service you for years to come into being your best self and help you find solutions you already have within you but haven’t been able to access. Whether you are looking for long term therapy to sort out past hurts, or short term therapy to see your way out of a difficult situation, I look forward to supporting you to reach your goals.
My approach to therapy is holistic, factoring the mind, body, and spirit into wellness to help empower you. My approach depends on each client's individual needs. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive processing theory for trauma (CPT), exposure with response prevention for anxiety disorders (ERP), mindfulness, and strengths based approaches and provide compassion, healing honesty, and support throughout our time together.
