About My Clients

My clients are individuals living with anxiety, depression, and PTSD related to chronic illness and/or lived experience of violence (individual, community, intergenerational, historical) and are seeking support, understanding, and new strategies for coping to move forward, heal, and thrive in a safe and compassionate space. Additionally, I specialize in working with those who do not yet have a diagnosis but are experiencing many life-altering symptoms for which they must "wait and watch."

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed clinical social worker (Washington, Oregon, New York) and psychotherapist with additional certification in the treatment of traumatic stress, and holistic health counseling and nutrition. I have taught classes on trauma-informed care and abuse and trauma at the graduate schools of social work of Columbia University and Portland State University. I believe in working with every client as a whole person, not just as a collection of symptoms. My approach is trauma-informed, insight-oriented, mindfulness-based, eclectic but steeped in cognitive-behavioral therapy, and collaborative. I partner with my clients to create new awareness and understanding of the impact of life experience on personal narrative, feelings, and behavior to develop helpful and safe coping skills to effect lasting change in overall well-being. Perhaps even more importantly, I listen. You know yourself and your life experience best. I truly consider it an honor to be a part of your process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My interest in social justice and providing direct service to trauma survivors stemmed from family growing up in NYC and my experience in the field as a documentary writer and producer. During that time, I had the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life - many of them survivors (and perpetrators) of violent crime - and attempting to tell their stories despite the many limitations of media. Instead I quit and went to social work graduate school where I worked with survivors of violent crime - including domestic violence, sexual and physical assault, gun violence, child abuse - in community mental health clinics and as the crime victim social worker in the largest public hospital in the South Bronx of New York City. It was in these spaces - emergency rooms, by hospital bedsides, one-on-one in an office, or in group settings - that I found my calling.
