About me

Everyone has a story, but many have not been given an opportunity to share or feel safe in sharing because of what's happened to them. Being heard can start you on the road toward healing.

I am a retired NYC First Responder, who is motivated to help people move from surviving to thriving. I believe that relationships help people thrive and flourish in their lives, but sometimes, relationships can also hurt, cause trauma, and prompt a person to function under “survival mode.” I hope to help my clients find understanding, meaning, and redemption while exploring their past and present experiences which impact how they view their future.

I use a trauma-informed approach when engaging with my clients and their story. My question is not, "What is wrong with you?," but instead I ask "What happened to you?" My aim is to empower my clients by educating them about their options and giving them an active role in their care. I see the importance of understanding someone's past story, and its impact in how they respond to the present. I believe in creating a safe and secure environment where I collaborate with my clients to work through these things together. In working with couples, my goals center on helping improve communication, understanding, and then equipping them with tools to relate to one another successfully.

I am pursuing training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) in June 2023, which will be completed by mid-August 2023.

I work with individuals, married couples, families, and First Responders dealing with issues of shame, depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, relational and sexual brokenness, work/family struggles, anxiety, grief, and spiritual confusion.
