About Me

I am a Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW) with specializations in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and couples and family therapy and a background in motivational interviewing, crisis counseling, and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT). I am excited to be creatively and practically integrating many therapeutic approaches in service of my clients’ wellbeing. I believe humans are born to be resilient. My goal is to help my clients transform their anxiety, depression, stress and trauma, so that they can access their full potential as strong, resourceful and capable individuals. I strive to create a warm and nonjudgmental space where they can share their struggles, re-process their past, and feel excited for the future.
