My master’s degree in international disaster psychology enables me to be trained in helping people from all walks of life. I am a trauma therapist by trade, but I have also found a liking to helping people achieve work/life balance, improve self-esteem, and recover from life disruptions (i.e. breakups, loss of employment, loss of a loved one). I use a combination of CBT & psychodynamic intervention with clients. During the first four sessions, I help clients identify coping skills they can use to cope with the day to day stressors before diving into discussing trauma. I believe this helps clients develop the tools they need to process trauma in a safe way to prevent being triggered during daily life.

Over the past few years, I have worked as an integrated health provider to learn about health from a global perspective. I help clients identify any potential physical health problems that could be impacting their mental health, as well as managing mental health following chronic medical diagnoses.

I strongly encourage clients to do consultations with multiple therapists before settling down with one. Research has shown that regardless of the type of intervention your therapist does, the relationship you have with them is the most important variable to your healing. Clients are welcome to schedule a free 15 minute consultation with me through my website ( to determine if we are a good fit.

My office is located downtown to enhance ease of access to my clients. Additionally, I offer evening & weekend appointments as well for the same reason. My hope for my clients is to make prioritizing their mental health as simple as possible.

Lastly, I do standalone diagnostic evaluations for emotional support animal letters. I have seen clients drastically benefit from the presence of their pets (especially while at work) and support my clients in having this therapeutic support with them.
