Bio and Interests
I have been a clinical social worker for over 14 years, specializing in trauma, both single incident and complex. Most of my experience has been working with adults who were raised in abusive environments. I take a strengths based approach and believe in educating my patients that trauma symptoms are the body and mind's way of coping with overwhelming circumstances. I use DBT, TF-CBT, and components of EMDR to help patients calm the body's physiological trauma response, develop healthier strategies for coping, and challenge trauma based thinking. I believe that cultural humility is critical and I welcome all expressions of identity. In my free time I enjoy movie nights with family, yoga, attempting to train my goldendoodle puppy, and drawing.
