WELCOME!

My work with trauma, crisis, and substance use began in juvenile probation settings and it has continued into public schools and residential treatment. I have treated and worked with teenagers / young adults in crisis and their families for 8 years, as well as experience working at domestic violence shelters.

If you are struggling to make sense of what you are experiencing & why,  or maybe you are overwhelmed by your challenges and need help sorting out the complexities, I want to help. I know that trauma can change your life in the hardest of ways AND I believe in your ability to heal from it. I believe in the importance of addressing underlying that may

be contributing to current difficulties such as anxiety, depression, relationship/codependency issues, substance use, anger, perfectionism, and more. I am trained in EMDR and use it frequently in the treatment of distressing symptoms for both teens and adults.

Using evidence-based techniques, knowledge of neuroscience, and frequent humor and sarcasm, I provide a bold, warm, and no-fluff approach to therapy.
