Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker and have worked for over 20 years in a variety of settings, including community and private mental health clinics, schools, and within the insurance industry and non-profit sectors. Since 2014, I have been dedicated solely to private practice. I am LGBTQIA+-affirming. I work from a feminist and anti-racist framework.
I offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, a well-researched, effective psychotherapy method, to help people move through past negative experiences. I am currently in the process of becoming a certified EMDR provider, and have been using it in my practice since 2018. I find EMDR therapy to be an extremely powerful and efficient modality. I have witnessed many clients experience significant relief from many different issues, such as past trauma (medical, sexual, and physical), as well as phobias, depression, and anxiety after working with EMDR.

I tailor my approach to each individual client and also draw upon CBT and ACT, approaches that bring intention and change to one’s thought patterns and the importance of self-compassion and mindfulness. I frequently train in treatment different modalities and stay up to date with current research.
