EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I work with adults, teens, and children, through individual, couple, family, and group therapy. I specialize in working with people who have experienced interpersonal traumas (i.e. emotional, physical, sexual abuse, grief and loss, violence, etc), and also institutionalized traumas like racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia. My work is attachment- based, trauma-informed, somatic, and from a social justice lens.
