My approach to treatment is eclectic and client led. My philosophy is to meet the client “where they are at”.

I believe there is more than one road to fulfillment and I love working alongside people to find theirs.

Personal Statement

Feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or like you simply cannot move forward? Life is a journey of ups and downs. Sometimes all you need is a unique perspective or someone willing to not just listen but really hear you. We have all been there, I welcome the opportunity to help you create a path to living your best life, whether that is healing from past trauma, dealing with loss or illness, or manage anxiety and depression. I am an ally. I am a fully licensed Clinical Social Worker, with MS in Criminal Justice specializing in victim advocacy. I believe in a holistic style of healing that is client led. I use a strengths-based approach to help you figure out what is best for you as an individual because no two paths are alike. I have a plethora of experience assisting clients to process and heal through sexual trauma using empowerment.
