Profile
“I was drawn to this work in order to create a safe space for individuals and families that is supportive, nurturing, compassionate, and nonjudgmental.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and certified doula with several years of experience working with children and families. I was born at home with the support of midwives and surrounded by three generations of family. After becoming certified as an LCSW and a doula, I have been able to provide comprehensive support and mental health services to families at every stage. After four years of struggling with my own infertility, I realized that women and their families need more support than ever. I also have over a decade of experience facilitating art therapy groups and working in therapeutic foster care. I previously served as a counselor at a homeless shelter for women and children and as a clinical supervisor, providing counseling services to children and families.
What should someone know about working with you?
I have experience working with all ages, diverse populations, the LGBTQI community, and as an advocate for individuals and families to grow from within. I was drawn to this work in order to create a safe space for individuals and families that is supportive, nurturing, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. I bring with me a calm energy and the understanding that every family is different.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Throughout my career, I have been committed to continuing my education as a provider. While I utilize a psychodynamic approach to counseling in my practice, I have a background in trauma-informed counseling, art therapy, mindfulness, and grounding techniques.
