I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, EMDR Trained Clinician, and Certified Family Trauma Professional. I received my B.A. in Philosophy from George Mason University where I also completed a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work and was twice recognized with the Outstanding Master of Social Work Award.
My career has included work in for-profit and non-profit settings, levels of care ranging from residential treatment to community based mental health care and time working with one of the top co-occurring treatment facilities in the country. Areas of clinical training and focus includes trauma, family, personality disorders, and substance use disorders. Additionally, I have a special interest in the use of philosophy to inform the therapeutic process and draw on existential perspectives to support individuals in the development of personal meaning and value for their lives.
