Bridget is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate, and has earned her Bachelors in Social Work and Masters in Social Work from Florida State University. Bridget has trained in a variety of settings such as working with those experiencing homelessness and facilitating steps towards rehabilitation, assisting children in the foster care system in emergency shelters and safe homes, diagnosing and treating clients at a substance abuse clinic, and learning therapeutic techniques for children experiencing mental health issues at an outpatient center.
Bridget is passionate about creating a therapeutic alliance with her clients and providing a safe, non-judgmental space, caring for individuals in their most vulnerable setting and genuinely walking through difficulties together. She believes in the power of feeling heard and seen, and is committed to the idea that every person's strength can and will be the catalyst in finding hope and healing. Each client will be met where they are at, and given the tools necessary in moving forward, and beyond therapy. Bridget's counseling approach is centered around cognitive therapy, utilizing strength-based and mindfulness based modalities.
