Professional Biography

Professional Degree: MSW
Primary Language: English

Level A Training Completed: 10/1/20
Additional Training: Cognitive Processing Therapy, CBT, ACT, Perinatal Mental Health

My approach to counseling is practical, supportive, & collaborative. It is understandable that asking for help can feel vulnerable. By forming an authentic professional relationship while working to alleviate distress, my goal is for therapy to feel safe & effective. I use your values & goals to guide our work together. My background includes 15 years in diverse organizations which gave me a rich experience treating different challenges including relationship conflicts, anxiety, grief, sexual assault, abuse, trauma, & postpartum challenges. I specialize in trauma recovery & maternal mental health but treat a variety of symptoms.
I am trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy which is endorsed by the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs & International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies as a best practice to treat PTSD. I am also trained in Interpersonal Therapy specific to maternal mental health and I am Perinatal Mental Health-Certified through Postpartum Support International.
Engaging in therapy is brave and takes a lot of strength. I believe that we all have the ability to address and manage our personal challenges. We often just need assistance in identifying and implementing skills to do so.
