Thank you for visiting my page! I got my start in the field of social work in 2001 and have served many diverse causes throughout my career. I specialized in social justice while earning my master’s in social work at the University of Maryland Baltimore, and now I have over a decade of experience doing clinical work with individuals, families, and couples.
I started my work as a therapist by receiving extensive training in couples’ dynamics and strategies to improve intimacy. I also specialize in the processing of recent and past traumas using EMDR, with particular interests in treating phobias and working with those who’ve survived childhood abuse, neglect, or intimate partner violence.
I’ve been a yoga instructor (RYT-500) since 2009 and I am passionate about understanding the many ways in which our bodies and minds connect for healing. I have completed postgraduate training in the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT Level 2), Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. I am also a certified EMDR therapist through the EMDR International Association and I’m an Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) certification candidate through the Parnell Institute.
