4 years of experience

Hello! I am an LCSW based in Arizona. I received my Masters from Arizona State University and have been practicing for 4 years. As a compassionate and experienced therapist, I specialize in supporting individuals like you through difficult times. With a deep understanding of the complexities of trauma, loss, and life changes, I provide a safe and nurturing space where you can explore your feelings, heal from past wounds, and discover the strengths within you to embrace a brighter future.

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

In the first session with me, clients can expect an initial assessment where we will discuss their needs, goals, and any specific concerns they may have. I'll ask questions to understand their background and what they hope to achieve through our sessions. This helps in establishing a comfortable and open environment. We will also outline a plan for future sessions and set clear, achievable objectives. The focus will be on building rapport and ensuring clients feel heard and supported.

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

As a mental health provider, my greatest strengths include empathy, active listening, and a non-judgmental attitude. I excel at creating a safe and supportive environment where clients feel heard and understood. My ability to tailor therapeutic approaches to individual needs, combined with a strong foundation in evidence-based practices, allows me to effectively address diverse mental health issues. Additionally, my ongoing commitment to professional development ensures that I stay updated on the latest research and techniques, enhancing the quality of care I provide. Cultural Competence: Respecting and understanding diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

My treatment methods

Trauma Informed Care

Person-centered trauma-informed care (PCTIC) is a therapeutic approach that prioritizes client's unique experiences and needs while acknowledging the profound impact of trauma on their mental health. Rooted in the principles of empathy, respect, and empowerment, PCTIC emphasizes creating a safe and supportive environment where clients feel heard and valued. This approach integrates an understanding of trauma's effects into all aspects of care, fostering a collaborative and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. By focusing on the person as a whole, PCTIC aims to promote healing, resilience, and personal growth, ultimately helping clients regain control over their lives.


Brainspotting is a powerful, focused mind body treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and physical pain, trauma, dissociation, and a variety of other challenging symptoms.

Grief Therapy

Grief therapy is a specialized form of counseling aimed at helping individuals cope with the emotional and psychological impact of loss. Utilizing various therapeutic approaches, grief therapy provides a supportive environment for clients to process their emotions, navigate the stages of grief, and ultimately find a path to healing and adjustment. Techniques may include talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral strategies, and mindfulness practices, tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual. The goal of grief therapy is not to hasten the grieving process but to provide tools and support that foster resilience and emotional well-being.
