Not taking new clients at this time

Welcome! I am passionate about helping individuals navigate life's challenges and achieve emotional wellness. My areas of specialization encompass the nuanced treatment of complex and developmental trauma, with a particular focus on dissociate disorders and addiction. My approach is compassionate and tailored to meet the unique needs of each person.

I firmly believe that in the innate capacity within everyone for healing and transformation. Therapy serves as a conduit, guiding individuals towards unlocking their own potential for grown and wellness. My approach is grounded in deep respect for each person's journey, and I highly value the therapeutic use of laughter and play. These elements foster a nurturing environment where healing can flourish organically.

My Approach

I specialize in providing compassionate and effective culturally sensitive psychotherapy services tailored to individuals of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds, spanning from childhood to adulthood.

As a licensed clinical social worker, I possess a unique skill set to address dual diagnoses effectively. I am proud to hold certification in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), with accreditation as an EMDRIA approved Consultant. Additionally, I am Nationally Certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CT-CBT).

With over two decades of experience in psychotherapy, I bring extensive expertise in various evidence-based modalities including DBT, ACT, CBT, mindfulness practices, and Polyvagal theory. My dedication to continuous learning ensures that I remain at the forefront of advancements in the field, allowing me to provide the highest quality care to my clients. My areas of specialization encompass the nuanced treatment of complex and developmental trauma, with a particular focus on dissociate disorders.

In addition, I focus on providing psychotherapy services designed specifically for therapists. Understanding the intricacies and demands of the profession, I offer a safe and supportive environment where fellow mental health professionals can prioritize their own self-care and growth.

I am also available to provide consultation for EMDR and supervision for those seeking their LCSW.
