About Me

In my clinical practice, I maintain a culturally responsive, strengths-based approach in my work. I value collaboration and believe that trust and safety is the cornerstone of quality therapy. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I have worked with people from differing cultures and with diverse ideas about parenting, religion, sexuality, gender identity/expression, marriage, and love.

Education & Experience

I earned my Master’s of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Southern Mississippi and a PhD in social work from Jackson State University. I have completed advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for use with couples and families. I also completed a certification in Traumatic Stress Studies from the Trauma Center at the Justice Resource Institute in Boston, MA and am a Certified Clinical Trauma Profession Level II (CCTP-II): Complex Trauma from the International Association of Trauma Professionals. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, a great intervention to work through traumas. I have also been trained in Somatic Regulation, Trauma Processing, and Attachment-Building (SMART). In addition, I've completed an advanced clinical fellowship on Infant, Early Childhood and Family Mental Health at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I am licensed in the State of Minnesota as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW). I can only work with individuals residing in Minnesota due to licensure law.
