Following a significant career transition a few years back, (I spent 5 years in the oil & gas industry before channeling my passions into mental health), I have worked in several therapeutic settings including private practice, psychiatric hospital units, nonprofits, and school systems.
My therapy approach is informed by a variety of advanced training in trauma resilience, and I utilize several therapy techniques, such as ACT, CBT (including ERP), DBT, mindfulness-based techniques, and EMDR. That being said, my diverse clinical background has taught me the importance of holistic and individualized approaches, which means I will meet you where you are at. We will work together to find solutions that work for you right now and create a plan together to support you as you move forward in your life.
Providing culturally appropriate and trauma-informed care is also extremely important to me, and I am currently a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist (CCTS).
