Education & Experience

I have been a therapist for 10 years. I am certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Alternatives for Families Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT). I have training in other therapy approaches and believe in exploring the connection between physical and mental wellness. I have a bachelor's degree from Indiana University, Bloomington and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Maryland. My prior work has been in child-welfare as a home-based therapist for adults, children, and families. I have been in a private practice setting since 2019 and started video sessions in 2020.
