Taking the first step toward change is hard. I believe in empowerment and using the strengths people continue to develop and possess throughout their lives. I am a licensed social worker and has additional experience in working with those who are experiencing substance use challenges. I provide identity affirming practice, compassion, empathy, and encouragement to reach the goals individuals set for themselves. As a therapist, I work to provide individualized care to young adults, and adults. I draw from modalities such as CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, and strengths-based perspectives.
I am the owner of JMA Consultation, LLC. Should you have any questions including questions about services, insurance or modalities, please contact me. I offer to meet with clients up to 3 sessions initially to ensure we are a good match. If we are not a good match, I am happy to offer referrals to assist you in finding the best match for your needs.
As a clinician with multiple intersecting identities, I understand the difficulty in seeking and committing to help. I will start wherever you are comfortable and I hope that we can both work together to realize your goals.
