Hello! I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker and earned my Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of South Carolina (2008). I am also certified as a Master Addictions Counselor (MAC), with the National Association of Forensic Counselors. I specialize in treatment for substance use disorders and have spent the past decade working to support our nation's Heros. I worked for both the Department of Defense and Department of Veteran's Affairs since 2010.
My favorite modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Substance Use Disorders, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused Therapy. These options lend themselves to person-centered treatment, which allows the client to lead the way. My approach to treatment is to create a partnership, that is client-centered and empowering. I'm excited that you took a look at my profile! Let's form a strong partnership and focus on getting you back to functioning at your best level!
