For a decade, I've effectively assisted adults and teens dealing with abuse, anxiety, depression, anger, disability, gender identity, spirituality, cultural and racial equity, grief, trauma, domestic violence, and psychosis. With a background in Dance Movement Therapy, I specialize in helping adults with disabilities and their families navigate challenges related to ability, access, and inclusion.

My approach is grounded in Family Systems Theory and Strength-Based Therapy, focusing on empowerment, insight, mindfulness, emotional awareness, cultural identity, and self-understanding. As an LCSW with over 20 years of experience, I bring a versatile therapeutic toolkit, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Therapy, Jungian Therapy, and aspects of Mindfulness. I am actively pursuing clinical certification in Dance Therapy to further enrich my practice.
