About Me

I am a clinical social worker in the LGBTQ+ community, serving adults who have experienced trauma in their lives. Whether the trauma was/is ongoing and there are multiple incidents, to a single incident trauma, I am happy to work with you to find resolution.

Education & Experience

I have worked with survivors of intimate partner violence since 2015 in the DMV. I use a trauma informed, client-centered approach, and incorporate Somatic Experiencing tools in session. I hold a LCSW-C in MD and VA. I am a Consultant in Training for EMDR. I have completed the Advanced Training for Somatic Experiencing and am working towards certification.
