With a biopsychosocial approach and a strengths-based perspective, I aim to provide a supportive and objective listening ear. I hope to provide understanding and a space in which you feel comfortable and free to further explore your self, your relationships, and your life choices. As a generalist, I work with individuals though a variety of concerns. I have a particular interest in life stressors, life transitions, depression, anxiety, medical condition coping, women’s issues, and overall mental and emotional wellness and processing.
I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) with 10 years of experience in the social work field. Thus far, I have primarily worked as a Medical Social Worker in both pediatric and adult settings – in a variety of Intensive Care and Oncology units. I currently continue this work in addition to my work at Foothills Counseling and Wellness.
Because of my work in the healthcare setting, I have worked with a variety of clients and needs during some of the most high-stress times in their lives. I have spent my career providing supportive counseling to clients and their caregivers as they face the struggles that come with battling an acute health crisis, chronic illness, and/or terminal illness. Every day stressors continue in the midst of these struggles and so I have additionally worked with my clients through these stressors including family transitions, relationship and parenting concerns, and career stress among many others.
I earned both a Bachelor’s of Science in Social Work (BSSW) and Master’s of Science in Social Work (MSSW) from the University of Tennessee Knoxville. After many years of practice as a LMSW, I am now currently working towards my clinical social work license under the supervision of Sarah Buchanan, PhD, LCSW.
I am now accepting clients age 18+.
