Having a sense of spirituality, an intention to make an impact, has been a natural part of who I am. I became a therapist because I want everyone to have a place where they feel heard, seen, validated. I know how important the right help is for our sense of belonging and acceptance. I've also graduated from my own 'school of hard knocks' and I believe that if I hadn't sought the support I did along the way, the road would have been even rougher. My role as therapist isn't to tell you what's wrong with you. It's to make sure you know I see your struggle, I get what that emotional pain feels like too, and I am a willing companion, walking beside you, on this part of your journey.
I love learning and I am always seeking more knowledge to help you heal. I consult monthly with experts in the field of EMDR and Dissociation and attend monthly peer supervision groups. I also invest in yearly trainings that will help me bring more to the 'therapeutic table' and I seek my own awareness from the practice of meditation and studying Buddhism. I have 16 years experience as a school social worker and 14 years in private practice. I have been trained in Rational Emotive therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness, and I became Certified in EMDR in 2018.
I give back by volunteering once a month at a local food pantry, and also by donating monthly to Women for Women International — where I sponsor marginalized women in third world countries to create sustainable change for themselves and their families.
My professional experience coupled with my own life experiences gives me wisdom, understanding, empathy and a genuine approachability. I believe in the freedom that comes from getting to know ourselves better, and the acceptance of ourselves that helps us to live more fully. Let's do this! Call today!
