About Me

It can take courage to come to therapy. Whatever brings you in the door, I will meet you with warmth, empathy, respect, and humor, and take an active role in helping you reach your goals. My approach is holistic, focusing on the mind, body, energy, and spirit, as well as the effects of structural oppression - and I’m continually learning in each of these areas. Within my EMDR and EMDR 2.0 therapy sessions I incorporate mindfulness and compassion-based therapies; IFS-informed parts work; and movement practices such as Yoga, Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping), and Somatic Experiencing. I find that these approaches can open a doorway to deep and compassionate inner listening, which allows clients to access their innate healing capacities and discover new ways of thinking, feeling, and being vibrantly human.

Education & Experience

I got my bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan and my MSW from Simmons College School of Social Work. Prior to becoming a therapist, I was a Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 200), Certified Wellness Coach, and Usui Reiki Level II practitioner. I am also trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Level 2 and am Certified in Advanced Integrated Energy Therapy (IET). I have a particular interest in the effects of intergenerational and collective trauma and am trained in Systemic Family Constellations, which combines elements of psychotherapy, ancestral work, and soul work to uncover and transform repeating generational patterns.
