Milwaukee, WI 53219
For the past 20 years, I have worked with families, couples, adults, and adolescents. Using cognitive-behavioral theory with narrative techniques, I help empower clients to explore areas within their lives that present challenges and inhibit change, and assist them with finding solutions that will work for them. However, I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is a vital component within any program, which means that I believe that any work needs to be collaborative between myself and my clients. I am certified to deliver trauma-focused treatments as well as providing services to help manage stress and anxiety.

I provide insight oriented, trauma focused therapy by utilizing brain-body based approaches including Brainspotting.
I support adults, 25 and older, to attain post traumatic growth, relief from overwhelming emotions, and create affirming meanings about their life experiences. My clients explore long held patterns, build safety within strong emotion, and expand their tolerance for distress. Through use of focused mindfulness, these clients develop authenticity, radical self love, affirming narratives, and wellness based habits that assist in overall self development. Clients from marginalized communities and identities will find a safe and inviting space with me. I am passionate about social justice, and operate from an anti-oppressive framework.

Many of us struggle daily with issues like anxiety, stress, depression, anger or just feeling misunderstood. We may feel stuck and ashamed at our inability to just will ourselves into being "better". This internal suffering is so common, but the good news is we all possess an internal capacity for change. It hurts to feel "stuck", but making changes can also be hard to do on our own. I have years of experience working with folks with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addiction, stress and other personal challenges. I am specially trained and committed to supporting clients in the LGBTQ community and immigrant populations.

The core of my work is creating a safe space where clients can feel heard, respected, and understood. A full and satisfying life is unique to each person; I will collaborate with you as you move toward the life you want to live. Understanding each client's culture, identities, and worldview is central to my approach. Not only is it important to deeply understand you as an individual, but also to explore how factors in the wider environment either promote your well being or intensify your distress. A holistic approach to wellness involves the individual, their relationships, and their wider world.
