About

I am passionate about accompanying people in their efforts to attain well-being. As a social worker, I honor the power of nurturing relationships to facilitate healing and promote positive change. In my prior career as an international human rights and immigration lawyer, I worked closely with communities marginalized by systems of power and privilege. The pillars of social justice--respect, care, recognition, and empathy--sustained my work of justly hearing and responding to diverse perspectives and needs; these same values inform my social work practice. I especially appreciate the impact of our collective and historical contexts.
I bring a warm, gentle, and affirming presence, a collaborative spirit, and empathic curiosity. I have experience working with children, teens, adults, parents, and families. I use a relational approach that is integrative drawing on somatic, attachment-based, strengths-based, and psychodynamic modalities.
My training includes Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Trauma and Developmental Injury Levels 1 & 2, Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders, Trauma Informed Stabilization Treatment, and Reflective Parenting. My areas of interest include: trauma, exploring identity, eating disorders, relationship concerns, anxiety and depression.
