Professional History

Specialties

 

Professional Objectives

“I truly enjoy my work and value the individuality of each person that I have the privilege to work with on a professional level. My personality meshes well with the values of the Social Work profession and I believe that lasting change comes from empowering people to determine their own course of action. No two people or experiences are the same and therefore, I believe it is vital to account for the unique needs of the individual to determine appropriate therapeutic interventions.”

Theoretical Orientation

“I enjoy working from a Strength-Based Empowerment Approach, Person-in-Environment, and Rogerian framework, all of which highly value therapeutic relationships and utilizes a person’s strenghts for coping with and overcoming challenges. I utilize Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, as well as other forms of interventions, depending on each unique situation.”
