As a trauma therapist, I know it takes courage to share your private experiences & vulnerabilities with someone new to you—such as a counselor. This understanding informs everything about my practice—in building our working relationship, I seek to cultivate a safe, healthy space where no matter who you are, you can be your most authentic self, without judgement. One of my missions is serving those who serve others—I have extensive experience working with military veterans & first responders, & if that’s you, I can help you cultivate the tools you need to navigate the uniquely challenging stressors and traumas of those experiences.
In addition, my practice is queer- and gender-affirming, ENM-aware, and embraces the experiences of clients with disabilities and BIPOC clients. I specialize in early childhood trauma, attachment injury, sexual violence, military trauma, and gender- and queer-affirming counseling.
My therapy incorporates evidence-based neuro-counseling techniques that empower you to recognize and correct destructive patterns and retrain your brain to respond to past traumas and current stressors in healthy, constructive ways using neurofeedback, EMDR, & IFS techniques.
