About

There are some changes and losses in life that break us. Completely. Totally. Every area is fragmented, jagged and raw. Sometimes the hurt is so overwhelming that we become numb, afraid, avoiding things that we used to enjoy. It’s hard to put those pieces back together again. They don’t fit the way they did before. While time may heal some wounds, moving from being functional in your pain to being free from that hurt takes effort and therapy. As a licensed clinical social worker with over ten years of experience, I’m here to assist you in moving from function to freedom.
I specialize in providing trauma-informed, culturally sensitive therapy to women, processing traumatic grief and challenges related to pregnancy, childbirth and adjustment to newborns.
You are more than the worst thought you’ve ever had. You are more than the worst thing you’ve ever done. You are more than the worst thing that has ever been done to you. Let’s move together from function to freedom.
