Education & Experience

I have 7 years of experience seeing clients in private practice and agency settings. I have my Master’s from John F. Kennedy University where I specialized in holistic and Transpersonal Psychotherapy. I worked exclusively with the Institute of Creative Mindfulness for EMDR, the Renfrew Center for Eating Disorders and Dr. Robert Grant on Dissociative Disorders for several years. I have experience in working with highly traumatized individuals with co-occurring disorders.
