I am a licensed clinical social worker with over eight years of experience providing therapy for adults and couples. I specialize in helping people recover from trauma and have been trained in a variety of techniques including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. I also specialize in working with young adults as they navigate challenging life transitions.
I believe in a collaborative and client-centered approach to therapy that focuses on your goals for your healing and well-being. I employ a strengths-based approach that encourages you to access the abilities and resources you have to promote healing. I believe in the importance of understanding and addressing the impact of inequity and intersectionality on mental health. I enjoy helping couples and families improve their communication and interactions with one another. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you to achieve your goals for your mental health.

Outside of work, I enjoy rock climbing, hikes with my dog, reading, and traveling.
Connecting with loved ones - I believe that connection and community are vital for my well-being.
Rock climbing indoors and outdoors is one of my favorite activities. When I'm climbing, I'm completely present and in-the-moment.
I have a rescue dog, Lola, who is a mixed-breed and is full of energy and excitement. Lola absolutely loves peanut-butter and never lets me forget about her nightly peanut butter treat. I rescued Lola from a high-kill shelter and she was brought to me on a bus with several other dogs. When she came off the bus, she was shaking and scared. I knelt down, put my arms around her, and she looked up at me and started wagging her tail. We have been together ever since.
