About Me

I have over 20 years of experience. I provide therapy in person and virtually. I work with adults (ages 20+) experiencing the effects of trauma, as well as a range of problems, including depression, anxiety, and major life transitions, among others. I offer compassion and empathy from a strength-based approach. I help clients to recognize their strengths and resiliency as they work towards healing. I also focus on sharing techniques that help clients restore calmness to the body and regulate the nervous system.

Education & Experience

I have experience working in a variety of settings including hospice care, the Victim Witness Program in State Court, and inpatient and outpatient mental health for adults and adolescents. My experience in trauma work has involved assisting adults with a history of complex trauma.
