Social Work Intern
I work with teens, adults, and couples struggling with transitions, losses, depression, anxiety, trauma, parent/child relational counseling, post-separation support, parallel parenting counseling, and family reconnection counseling.
Areas of Focus:
• Adolescents, adults, couples, families
• Relational and attachment challenges
• Chronic pain and illness
• Life transitions
Approach & Style:
• BS in Business from Union Institute, Ohio
• MSW from the University of Massachusetts (in progress)
• Certified Trauma Professional
My style is kind, gentle, and relational. I seek to assist you in your growth as you develop new ways to manage life’s challenges. I will help with guiding a solution-focused process while aiding with self-efficacy. I find it important to support the body in staying calm while learning new ways to manage day-to-day life stressors effectively. I believe in the potential of the mind, body, and spirit connection, integrating all three when working together. I also bring a Christian faith-based approach if this is desired.
I am interested and have specialized training in trauma, introspective awareness for children, grief support for pregnancy and infant loss, family reconnection counseling, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). As a foster parent, I developed a profound interest in attachment theory and compassion for children with insecure or disrupted attachments. Thoughtfully providing a safe container for growth and development while fostering a protected place for the client to thrive is the goal of the work together.
