Do you ever feel like you have to hide who you really are within your family, school, workplace, place of worship or relationships? Do you mess up, say the wrong things and want to hide in shame? Maybe you don’t even feel safe within yourself? Do you judge or harshly criticize yourself? You are not alone. My passion is to help others discover their authentic self and find peace within.

As a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, I have more than 15 years of experience working with children and adults in the areas of abuse, trauma, shame, self-compassion, identity, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, addictions, anger, and codependency. My clinical framework is a strength-based and internal family systems approach with specialized training in Brainspotting and EMDR.
