I'm an EMDR therapist who has I has over years experience as a clinical social worker, counselor, and advisor. As an EMDR specialist, I focus on working with individuals struggling with developmental and relational trauma, single incident trauma, and anxiety/perfectionism/imposter syndrome. My therapeutic approach is collaborative, strengths-based, and client-centered and draws upon attachment-based, mindfulness-focused, trauma-informed and evidence-based behavioral modalities. I have completed specialized training in somatic therapies (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR), Compassion-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and I am experienced with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and psychodynamic modalities.
Prior to receiving my MSW, I earned a PhD in English Literature, and I have taught study skills and writing and provided academic counseling to young adults in a university setting. I have volunteered as a crisis counselor at Ozone House and have counseled clients at SafeHouse Domestic Violence Center.
