My Approach to Helping

I have worked in a variety of settings throughout my career. I began working in an outpatient mental health clinic treating individuals with co-occurring substance abuse and mental illnesses issues. I then took the knowledge and experience I learned to provide individual counseling to women 16-70. I am also trained in perinatal mood disorders and healthy relationship skills.

I completed EMDR training in 2019 to better assist people in coping with trauma. Throughout my career, I noticed people suffer from unresolved grief and trauma. I wanted to do more than talk therapy, so I ventured into the world of EMDR. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing have drastically changed how I approach trauma. Utilizing this modality, I have helped people overcome their trauma and get back to living their lives. I am also trained in perinatal mood disorders and am passionate about helping mothers with postpartum depression, anxiety, and anger.
