I am a licensed social worker in Erie, PA. I have a range of experience assisting client’s with various needs including intimate partner violence, mental health, and coping with physical disabilities. I have experience working with trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, bipolar, and autism spectrum disorder.
Since starting my career, I have worked helping individuals through a transitional period whether leaving an abusive situation, changes with level of care needs, or coping with a new diagnosis or disability. During these stages, it’s often important to have extra support to successfully overcome obstacles. I have personal and professional experience coping with the struggles of daily living with a disability.
My therapeutic style is primarily based on client centered therapy with a mix of strengths based, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. My approach utilizes different techniques to identify interventions most effective based on the client’s needs.
