My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas, Wisconsin and Registered Out-of-State Telehealth provider in Florida. I am also a certified eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and certified anger resolution therapist. I have advanced training to incorporate trauma informed yoga practices within the EMDR treatment modality. I utilize a trauma focused, person centered and strength's approach, developing a strong therapeutic relationship to begin the work of healing the wounds of trauma. My social worker foundation includes a person-in-environment perspective, recognizing we function within social relationships and systems, sometimes hurt or denied access within these relationships and systems. I help clients deprogram themselves from the "rules" we have been taught by society and/or abusers, such as how we are "suppose" to act, be, look, feel, etc. This is is a partnership, together we can help you overcome past trauma, live in the present and thrive in your future.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My core personal values and beliefs are in alignment with my professional social worker's core values of service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence. I am an approved Healing Tree provider, a member of our local mental health task force, we work with community partners to help raise awareness about mental health issues, reduce stigma and attitudinal barriers, and provide more access to mental health resources for underserved people. I am also a member of the National Association of Social Workers, EMDR International and my local NAACP to stay informed and engaged.
