Throughout my professional career I have provided mental health services and therapy in a variety of settings, most of which specialize in trauma. While I work with all types of trauma, I am especially passionate about working with survivors of gender-based and interpersonal violence. I have had the privilege to work with clients of all ages on issues such as PTSD/trauma, depression, anxiety, dissociation, self-harm, and suicidal ideation. I received my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work with a concentration in mental health and a certificate in animal-assisted social work.
When I began my career as a mental health therapist, I was immediately drawn to working with survivors of trauma. I have completed various trainings on trauma work, trauma-informed approaches in therapy, and am an EMDR Trained Therapist. In addition to EMDR, I utilize modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), parts work, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness. I am also a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200) and often utilize trauma-informed yoga in my practice when requested.
One of the joys of private practice is having the opportunity to support clients and tailor their treatment and therapy experience to their specific needs and desires. I work with both adolescents and adults, utilizing a strengths-based, humanistic, culturally sensitive, and anti-oppressive lens. As a therapist I will walk alongside you and provide the space for you to process through trauma and emotional pain. Every day my clients amaze me, and it is my biggest privilege to support them.
