About me

I believe the space held between therapist and client is sacred. It is a privilege and honor to be invited to take part in the journey of another person’s life.

I believe that you are more than your trauma or diagnosis. My goal is to be a therapeutic partner in helping you foster your strength and resilience. Together we will explore what you need to manage uncomfortable feelings, identify behaviors you want to change and integrate healthy ways of coping into the rhythm of your life. I believe in you.
I graduated from University of Michigan with an MSW in 2007. I have served as a therapist in both private practice and Community Mental Health. My therapeutic approach is strengths-based and trauma-informed. I utilize a range of interventions from such evidence-based practices as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Harm Reduction. I was recently trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
