About

I have been helping men, women, and teens work through a variety of mental health concerns for the last 14 years, with a specialized focus in working with trauma and addictions. Creating space for curiosity and compassion towards parts of ourselves that have been helping us cope, I love the opportunity to help people pay attention to their experience in new ways and find freedom from the things that have kept them feeling stuck.
I have begun the process towards certification in Internal Family Systems, or IFS, completing level 1 and 2 training. I am trained in EMDR, and have spent significant time studying the connection between the mind and body through lens of Interpersonal Neurobiology, Polyvagal Theory, and other somatic oriented treatments.
Anyone who knows me has to hear me constantly talk about how much I love what I do. Having the daily opportunity of helping people step into their stories with curiosity and compassion truly never gets old for me.
