During my years in practice, I have noticed that many people feel like they are living their lives the way others would like them to live. This can create or contribute to depression, anxiety, and a general feeling of disconnection from oneself. Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, childhood or recent trauma, or sexuality issues, my work is dedicated to helping you find your most authentic voice so that you can create the life that you've always wanted to live.
Following graduate school, I completed a three year residency in Psychotherapy. I have a special interest in working with the LGBT community and have earned a post-graduate certificate in Clinical Work with LGBT Individuals and their Families. Additionally, I have completed training on the use of EMDR to heal trauma.
