I have continued education for helping the LGBTQ + community and I completed training from Postpartum Support International (currently finishing the certification for PMH-C).
I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.

I am only accepting testing clients at this time. Throughout life, many of us will experience some sort of emotional issue. Some we can handle on our own, and others we may want to explore on a deeper level with a specialist. I look forward to working with those who are brave enough to face these issues head on, and to explore some of the underlying reasons why these issues have manifested. I specialize in trauma, PTSD, anxiety, yoga therapy, bariatric evals, LGBTQ concerns, adjustment disorders, as well as testing and assessment (ADHD and PTSD Screenings, neuropsychological and psychological/personality testing with report).

With individuals, I work with trauma, anxiety, ASD and ADHD, depression, LGBTQIA issues, sexual assault/ violence, and self esteem building. My main goal is to meet clients where they are in the moment.

Life has recently shown me that curveballs are bound to happen with no warning whatsoever. COVID-19 was a clear example of that. This past two years have shown me just how quickly life can be derailed and how pivotal it is for mental health professionals like myself to exist. I have spent the last year working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, biomedical issues, their various relationships, traumas from the past and present, family matters, and substance use.
