I am a licensed clinical social worker with over forty years of experience in the Washington area. As a therapist, I am committed to helping individuals and couples grow through the struggles and challenges of life. As a clinician, I have spent my career educating and training other mental health professionals and healthcare providers on how to assist their clients as they face life crisis and transitions. Individuals and couples may struggle to emotionally grow and develop full happiness, not unlike a lotus that must push through the murkiness of its environment before reaching the light, at which time it blossoms into a flower of unique beauty and strength. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
