I knew in my heart when I was a teenager that becoming a therapist would be my future. I made that dream a reality. I graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz with a BA in Psychology and went on to get my Master’s in Science in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University. I have 20 years of experience in the clinical field. I have worked in a variety of therapeutic positions including medical social work, program director, and trauma therapist. I served as the clinical director of a treatment center for substance abuse and dually diagnosed patients for many years.
My passion for therapy grew when I found early on in my career that treating trauma was my niche. Trauma is defined as anything that has a lasting impact on your mind, body, and soul. I became an EMDR therapist and then a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, two very effective modalities used to treat trauma. Somatic Experiencing along with Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy are my two primary modalities. The two used together not only treat trauma at its core, but also help to identify and shift the thought processes that guide emotions and maladaptive behaviors that lead many people to feeling stuck in patterns they want changed.
It would be my joy to help you or your loved ones change these patterns and find peace and freedom in your lives.
