I am a Licensed Master’s Social Worker (LMSW-cc) and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) offering mental health therapy at Alternative Wellness Services. I offer in person therapy at our Portland, ME office and telehealth services.
I work alongside individuals of all walks of life, who experience challenges such as depression, loss, relationship issues, anxiety, and burn out. I use a variety of treatment approaches and skills from cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution focused therapy.
As a therapist it’s important for me to harbor a safe and warm environment for the individuals I work with to process their experiences, and to meet my client’s where they are at in their recovery. I believe in therapy that is collaborative, and understand that change is not linear.
Therapy is a journey of rediscovering the strengths one has within them to create a manageable and individualized life worth living.
