About Me

**Please contact me about appointment availability. I offer telehealth sessions and limited in-person appointments (based in Sterling Heights, MI).** I am licensed in Michigan (LMSW) and Illinois (LCSW). I have worked with adolescents and adults, many of whom have struggled with different mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, adjustment disorders, bipolar disorder, and relationship conflict. With my clients, I strive to foster a safe, non-judgmental place for healing that solely focuses on your goals and needs. I use a client-centered and strengths-based perspective to help facilitate the process of self-discovery and growth. I specialize in anxiety, trauma, and coping skills development. My therapeutic approaches include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as well as aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

Education & Experience

I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Michigan in 2014 and received my Master of Social Work from Wayne State University in 2016. I completed my EMDR basic training in December 2021. I am actively working toward full certification at this time.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Practitioner (CCTP). I am also a registered yoga instructor (RYT-200) and certified in Yin Yoga at the 30 hour level through the Yoga Alliance.
