Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LICSW
I have been a clinical social worker for well over 21 years. I've worked in a variety of settings including outpatient substance abuse treatment, community mental health, military treatment centers and community health centres. I have worked with complex trauma (combat and non combat related), addictions, LGBTQ+ individuals and couples as well as persistent and chronic mental health including depression and anxiety. I also have an interest in working with non-traditional spirituality. I offer trans-competent care, and after appropriate evaluation, will provide gender affirming support letters for surgery.
In addition to offering Trans and LGBTQ competent care, I have worked directly with active duty military personal engaged in combat operations in recent conflicts and their dependants. I am therefore complex PTSD competent.
In addition, I have experience working with depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, coming out concerns, young adult/college students and teens, relationship issues, life transitions, and men's issues. I have also worked with male sexual assault survivors. I offer empathic and supportive care that will be centred on your needs.
