More Than Trauma-Informed, Trauma Trained


My pronouns are she/her. I welcome all bodies, all abilities, all races & ethnicities, all religions, all sexual orientations, identities, and expressions, all countries of origin, and all people. Wherever you are on your journey, I would be honored to be with you.


I invite you to meet with me to see if we may be a good therapeutic fit.


My Background: I have spent a decade facilitating group work with women who had experienced trauma and abuse. My passion is to create an environment in which the stigma and silence surrounding abuse can be broken in the lives of those in our community. I have seen the freedom of healing that can be offered when people are supported by both individual and group therapy. I love working in a group setting because of the ability for attendees to be offered care by others with similar experiences. I focused my graduate work on expanding my knowledge of trauma and abuse. The goal is to bring into focus one's experience of familial, identity-based, religious, and social harms from a framework of one's attachment styles in current relationships. I work with others to identify healing experiences beyond talk therapy by integrating group work with a deeper awareness of one's somatic response to their history of trauma and abuse. I seek opportunities to increase my awareness of the oppression that exists in our community and world. I desire to create a safe place to explore the harm that you have experienced.
