I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have experience working with children, youth and adults. I am trained in Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C), EMDR and PC-CARE for children 10 and under.

Welcome to a safe space where you are welcome to join me in a journey to wellness. I work with children, youth, and adults on a variety of issues. You've taken the first step to seek treatment and support. Clients who are experiencing, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, relational issues or past trauma are welcome! I have specialized training in Perinatal Mental Health issues and I am passionate about helping women experiencing any: infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, traumatic birth, prenatal/postnatal depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc. If you are a mom or want to be a mom, it's vital to build your support team – it's never too late!
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is extremely helpful in dealing with trauma, panic attacks, or stressful situations that may cause anxiety or undue stress. I've assisted past clients in achieving their goals of resolving or coping with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, behavioral problems and more.
I am also trained in PC-CARE for children 10 and younger. This is a wonderful evidence based therapeutic approach that allows the family to reconnect and build healthy relationships which in turn create positive strategies for dealing with difficult behaviors.
I also have extensive experience in the Anti-Trafficking field and have worked with survivors of Human Trafficking.
If you are looking for a kind, empathetic and knowledgeable therapist, please get in touch with me for a free consultation to see if it's a good match. I have over ten years of experience working with people from all different backgrounds. I'm here to help build on your strengths and challenge those negative thoughts.
