“EVERY client will be met with unconditional care and compassion.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I worked as a preschool teacher for six years prior to my current career as a therapist. Recognizing the importance of social emotional development and the prevalence of complex trauma led me to seek a career where I could better understand the systems that impact our individual and community mental health.
What should someone know about working with you?
The work looks different for every client, because every client is different. However, EVERY client will be met with unconditional care and compassion. During intake and throughout the work, I will learn your communication style and adjust my therapeutic style accordingly.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I frequently attend workshops and continuing education courses through organizations that focus on trauma, ADHD, parenting, neurodiversity, autistic-led community efforts, community arts, holistic healing, energy medicine, somatic integration, psychedelic-assisted therapies, and restorative justice initiatives.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am enthused about the growing discourse around neurodiversity and autism self-diagnosis that is taking place outside of the professional circles. There have been many patterns emerging as a result of online community-based discourse, particularly around neurodiversity, complex trauma, and connective tissue issues in the body.
