About me

I am an experienced licensed clinical social worker with over 10 years of experience in trauma counseling. I specialize in EMDR and LGBTQIA+ issues.

We all struggle at times and our struggles are our own, do not compare what may feel catastrophic to you to what others are dealing with. I have been practicing for 12 years and revolve my practice around person-centered therapy; non-judgment, genuineness & positive regard. I will accept you for who you are, and we will start where you are. My goal is to help you reach your goals. I find that humor, compassion, and authenticity allow my clients to feel comfortable and progress at the same time. Since 2010, I have provided intensive therapy at institutional, residential, and outpatient levels of care for adults and adolescents.
I have worked with various populations and issues, including forensics, sexual abuse, domestic violence, trauma, transgender, gay & lesbian, adolescents, crisis, self-harming behaviors, couples & families. I specialize in EMDR and gender-affirming treatment. We practice inclusivity and welcome diversity.
Everyone has the ability to learn the skills to improve their state of mind. I can help you find these tools, whether it be through mindfulness, emotional regulation, acceptance, awareness or trauma processing.
