Profession: Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: I work with you to create a safe, collaborative relationship where we can explore, understand, and transform the concerns and issues that bring you to therapy. Although I work with a wide variety of people and issues, I have a special interest in working with complex trauma and related concerns, such as dissociation, chronic anxiety, persistent depression, and self-harm.

Additionally, I also specialize in working with people in the midst of major life transitions, such as being in school, starting a career, or getting married, to name a few such transitions. I believe that therapy during these times of transition can foster a sense of competence and confidence by helping you find ways to strengthen the resilience and skills you already have.

In addition to being educated and experienced as a psychodynamic psychotherapist, I am also a trained and experienced birth and postpartum doula. A doula is a professional who provides emotional and practical support to individuals and couples through pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum months. This unique background gives me the opportunity to create an individualized approach tailored to the needs of each person as we navigate the various concerns and transitions that arise as the therapy progresses.
