I'm empathic and invested, with a deep desire to empower your healing journey. I'm a certified clinical trauma specialist, with specialized training to support children, teens, and adults. I also specialize in working with the lgbtq+ community as an affirming therapist. Exposure to a variety of practice settings has allowed me to offer individualized and client centered therapies. What makes you, you? What’s your story? Therapy allows us to deepen into your story and healing.
I have over a decade of experience, having worked directly in the mental health field as a clinician since 2010 and specialize in working with children, teens, and adults recovering from trauma, anxiety, and depression. I also specialize in
providing affirming therapy to the LGBTQ+ community. I have experience working in a non-profit
residential treatment facility, providing intensive in-home services, and expanding my skill set in a
private day school setting. Exposure to these varying practice settings has allowed me to offer
individualized and client centered therapies.
I utilize and integrate many treatment modalities in conjunction with assessments drawn from
Collaborative Problem Solving. This approach emphasizes the perspective that, “Kids
will do well if they can”… and if they are experiencing challenges, they are lacking certain skills that can
be taught. Teaching underdeveloped skills can empower youth to build confidence, strengthen self-
esteem, and nurture self- awareness, self-acceptance, and resiliency skills. I provide group and individual
counseling to lead clients toward personal empowerment.
Within my work at Kindred, I'm expanding my interest in the field of neuroscience and pursuing additional
training/research to study the brain and body connection. By doing so, my hope is to continue to learn
relevant and evidence-based approaches to assist in holistic healing and full body recovery from the
impacts of trauma and stress. Healing from within.
I have specialized training in:
Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Trauma based therapy
Neuroscience based therapies
Grief and loss therapy
Client centered therapies
