Taking the first step and asking for help takes courage! I'm proud of you for reaching out and I look forward to being part of your healing. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Master's Level Certified Addiction Professional, Internationally Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, TF-CBT Certified Therapist, EMDRIA Certified Therapist, EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Basic Trainer, and Registered Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator. I have spent nearly 20 years in the fields of child trauma, childhood sexual abuse and reactivity, substance abuse, and mental health. I specialize in working with individuals with co-occurring disorders, clients who struggle to achieve and maintain sobriety, families in crisis, individuals with trauma, child welfare cases, and those with significant mental health diagnoses. I utilize a trauma-informed, client-centered, strengths-based approach when working with all clients and I combine evidence-based trauma treatments with Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Play Therapy.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our first session, we will identify your goals and what will change in your life for you to know that therapy has been effective. We will begin to build a therapeutic alliance and develop trust so we can process traumas and work together to help you heal.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I specialize in treating trauma and, more specifically, have significant expertise in treating childhood traumas such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, adoption, and foster care, as well as substance use disorder.
