About My Clients

Are you tired of traditional talk therapy? Overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety, or fear and panic? You might be suffering from the trauma of an abusive or neglectful childhood (developmental trauma). Or, as an adult, from the shock of recent or acute, traumatic events. I specialize in treating trauma, anxiety, low self-esteem, and life transitions.

My Background and Approach

I graduated from Antioch University with a Masters’s in Clinical Psychology in 2020. I have been in the mental health field since 2013 working with various nonprofits including facilitating grief groups at Our House Grief Support Center in 2016-2018. Pre graduate school I've worked with kids age 5-18. Since graduate school, I’ve been practicing Narrative Therapy at Miracle Mile Community Practice for two years. I became certified in a somatic modality similar to EMDR called Brainspotting. In my sessions, I use talk therapy as well as deep brain-based work. The talk therapy part breaks down many problems that are influenced by societalcultural pressures. Also, allowing the client to feel dignity. With the brain-based somatic work I do, I am able to heal what talk therapy cant which is trauma, developmental, and performance issues.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe problems are not created in a vacuum. The world we live in shapes us in many ways. I have a post-modern approach to therapy. I step away from pathologizing and look into values. I also live by a "do no harm" moto. It is my duty to make sure to put the client's needs first. I am an LGBTQ affirming therapist.
