Specializing in reproductive & perinatal mental health, trauma support & recovery. Providing LGBTQ* competent and affirmative therapy.
Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, IL
I pursued a post-graduate training fellowship in LGBTQ affirmative practice. I have also sought training to deepen my skills in supporting TGNC birthing people.
I previously worked at Evanston NorthShore Hospital as a social worker with the perinatal family support team. I have trained with Postpartum Support International and am eligible for certification as a perinatal mental health clinician. Prior to becoming a clinical social worker, I was trained and worked as a birth doula with pregnant and parenting young adults.
I have post-graduate training in trauma informed psychotherapy, and am trained in TF-CBT (Trama-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). I have experience supporting individuals with complex/developmental trauma, childhood abuse, sexual trauma, and birth trauma.
