I received my Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and my Master’s in Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California (License Number 86497). Since graduating with my MSW in 2002, I have worked and trained in community based programs for much of my career, until moving full-time into my private practice in 2019.
I have specialized training in trauma-informed care and in working with children, adolescents and adults. My approach is adapted carefully to individual needs and is inclusive in regard to gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, culture, class, and religious/spiritual orientation. I work with many LGBTQ+ individuals in my practice.
I have a psychodynamic and relational orientation and integrate many modalities into my work, including art, mindfulness and somatic strategies, specifically Brainspotting and Somatic Experiencing. Every person I work with is an individual with their own history, strengths, needs, worldview, and learning style and I tailor my approach with this in mind.
