“I am a Clinical Social Worker providing services to individuals and families with varying backgrounds and needs. I have worked as a Clinical Social Worker throughout the country supporting those that have experienced one or more traumas at any stage of life, often impacting daily functioning, quality of relationships, and overall level of comfort. I understand that trauma, grief, life transitions, stress, and chronic pain can impact the mind, body, and spirit collectively and to varying degrees. I like to take a holistic approach to address the wounded parts of the Self that need to heal in order to restore functioning and promote wellness.

Incorporating somatic modalities into treatment has proven to be an accessible way to support individuals in their ability to learn to self-regulate to provide relief from symptoms of anxiety and depression. I have found Sand Play Therapy and Trauma-Informed yoga/breathing techniques to be transformative therapeutic approaches to support comprehensive healing. I feel honored to connect with so many different people through this work and look forward to holding space for those on their own unique journey to self-empowerment and healing.

“Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you touch a human soul be just another human soul.”- C.G. Jung
