About

Struggling with day to day living? Searching for calmness in the midst of uncertainty? If so, you and I can walk through the journey together. I am a therapist who specializes in working with youth, adolescents, and adults who have emotional and behavioral difficulties, various mental health diagnosis, childhood trauma, cognitive disabilities, and those that struggle with grief, drug abuse, alcohol use, and addiction. Additionally, I also specialize in working with females that are victims of domestic violence and have experience providing therapy for people who have been victims of physical, sexual, verbal, and/or emotional abuse.
I have worked with survivors of trafficking and exploitation and sexual abuse. I use various interventions such as EMDR, TF-CBT, TBRI, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and multiple other therapies and techniques to meet each client's individual needs.
