I am a non-pathogizing therapist who focuses on experiential, healing work to help you discover your beautiful unfolding.
Clinical Social Worker in Texas
My own journey with a late diagnosis of ADHD has made me passionate about working with adults who are learning more about their diagnosis. I work with clients to help them develop systems and structures that support their lives, while also highlighting the strengths that can come from being neurodiverse. I can also help support clients in needing accommodations are work or school related to their ADHD.
A majority of my training as a therapist has been aimed at becoming more competent at treating trauma - specifically PTSD and Complex PTSD. I am EMDR and IFS trained, and have pursued advanced trainings in healing spiritual trauma related to evangelical Christianity. I am committed to helping unpack the harm done by these systems and helping you work toward healing and wholeness in your life.
Helping those in the helping professions is a passion of mine - whether you're a therapist or a medical professional, or a life coach, I would love to help you process the stresses your work brings into life, or work through your own trauma that's showing up in the room. A large majority of my caseload is made up of therapists or other helping professions.
Being trauma informed is my number one priority as a therapist, whether someone is coming to therapy to work explicitly on traumatic experiences, or we are unpacking the trauma that is incurred simply by living a life as a human being on Earth. The modalities I choose to use are healing modalities and specifically designed to treat trauma.
EMDR is my primary choice for treatment due to how effective it is. I completed my basic training in 2021 and have pursued advanced training in Kendhal Hart's EMDR+IFS protocol, as well as utilizing EMDR to treat spiritual abuse.

I am Level One IFS trained, and will be completing Level Two training to work with couples in the Fall of 2023. I use IFS on its own or with other modalities to deepen the healing work that clients are pursuing. I also work with an IFS practitioner personally and use IFS in my own personal growth work.
