My preferred initial communication is email. Serving in the army for 10 years, I have worked with many different cultural backgrounds, as well as those with differing spiritual beliefs. Since attaining my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I have pursued many therapeutic techniques to help my clients. My clinical interests include treating trauma, neuroaffirming as well as providing LGBTQIA+ affirmative psychotherapy to sexual minorities. If you're struggling with anxiety, depression or past experiences are negatively affecting you, feel free to reach out to see if we are a good fit to work together.
I am trained in EMDR and Attachment-Focused-EMDR disciplines in treating trauma-related issues by assisting individuals to overcome distress, trauma, anxiety, or PTSD symptoms. I'm also trained in Biofeedback, Ego State/Dissociation (Parts Work), the Flash Technique, and Intergenerational Trauma to help clients discover relief.
In my practice, I celebrate neruodiversity and provide neuroaffirming care.  I do not pathologize brains that present within the neurodiverse umbrella (ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, ect.).  My goal is to provide a safe space for folks to explore and work on their concerns and not feel othered.  We all deserve to be seen.

I often use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Attachment Focused Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). DBT uses mindfulness principles and looks at thoughts, emotions, and interpersonal effectiveness. IFS helps to integrate parts of ourselves. People learn to reparent their needs. EMDR helps clear trauma from our minds and bodies.
