About My Clients

I'm a therapist because I know what it's like to feel stuck, confused, angry, or sad and not know why. I'm here to figure it out with you! I have experience working with children, teens, young adults, and their families/guardians. Together we have tackled depression, anxiety, trauma (and somatic symptoms of trauma), LGBTQ+ issues, romantic and interpersonal relationships, self-harm, and suicidal ideation.

My Background and Approach

I graduated from the University of Michigan Ann Arbor School of Social Work with my LLMSW, focusing on Interpersonal Practice & Mental Health in December 2017. Since then, I have received training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Somatic and Attachment Focused Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (SAFE EMDR), as well as exposure to Parts Work, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Parent-Management Training of Oregon (PMTO), and Internal Family Systems (IFS).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a social worker first, therapist second. We can not truly heal without acknowledging the pain and trauma inflicted upon us by our position in a racist, capitalist system. Intersectional, anti-racist, trauma-informed, non-violent compassion is my goal.
