Licensed in
Therapy licenses aren't like driver's licenses — each state has its own set of rules. To offer care, a provider needs to be licensed in the state you're located in when sessions are happening.

“There is no right or wrong way; there's just curiosity, presence, compassion, and — sometimes — laughter.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Becoming a therapist was the beginning of my second life; I was previously in sales before earning my master's in social work in 2018. I was drawn to therapy through my own mental health journey of recovery from childhood trauma, depression, and anxiety. In training, I've worked in the education system, substance abuse recovery, and family trauma with teen boys. I am a certified NARM (neuroaffective relational model) therapist, specializing in attachment trauma and somatic mindfulness. This supports clients in connecting to different parts of themselves and accessing the power they need to overcome their present obstacles.
What should someone know about working with you?
There is no right or wrong way; there's just curiosity, presence, compassion, and — sometimes — laughter. There is no expectation or pressure from my end because it’s not about fixing you; it's about being connected.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I continue to seek case consultation from the NARM Training Institute, attend webinars focused on decolonizing the psychiatric field, and engage in learning about the intersection of systemic trauma for all marginalized groups. I also see my own therapist regularly to incorporate self-care into my life.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe in the healing power of conversation, allowing me the privilege to help people overcome obstacles in the way of being joyful, healthy, and connected. I believe in science, I believe that Black Lives Matter, I believe that Love is Love, I believe no human being is illegal, and I believe that every human being deserves respect, dignity, and a right to live authentically. I value connection and I believe that we all have everything we need inside ourselves. "Let the waters settle and you will see the moon and the stars mirrored in your own being.” - Rumi
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I enjoy the accessibility that telehealth allows while keeping people safe. My experience with telehealth solidifies the idea that human connection can be fostered and felt through technology regardless of potential limitations like geography. The internet is a great tool for connecting with fellow humans.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I've researched and presented two clinical webinars on the impact of systemic oppression in therapy work with BIPOC and LGBTQIA clients. Anti-racism and allyship education have increased recently and I continue to provide consultations on the impact of societal labels on an individual’s trauma adaptation and self-identity.
