I am a Licensed Master Social Worker, LMSW, and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, CAADC, with over 15 years of experience. I have specialized knowledge in trauma, depression, anxiety, and substance use.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based intervention for working with individuals who have experienced trauma or disturbing events in their lives that keep them stuck. EMDR quickly moves an individual through disturbing events and negative self-beliefs to positive self-beliefs, eliminating emotional distress.
I believe improved quality of life, emotional, physical, and social, can be achieved by building upon your strengths and providing you with a safe, supportive, nonjudgemental environment while respecting your hopes, dreams, and desires. I am passionate about helping individuals, couples, families, and the LGBTQ+ community obtain the quality of life they deserve through their healing process. There is hope if you do not have the quality of life you deserve. It would be an honor to assist you in achieving a happy, healthy, and purpose-driven life with the quality relationships you deserve.
