My clients have described me as approachable, compassionate, & non-judgmental. My goal is to help you explore & process unhealthy patterns of thinking and behavior while learning new healthy ways to regulate your emotions, communicate with others, & to stand firm in your decision-making.
I am trained in EMDR with focus on maladaptive attachment, meaning I help you to uncover & clear negative beliefs you might have developed from memories & previous traumatic experiences.
I’ve worked in a variety of settings including the emergency room, an adolescent/adult partial hospitalization program, community mental health, and private practice with each experience offering to be an ally/advocate/resource for other clinicians, clients identifying as LGBTQIA+, and their families. I’ve worked closely with numerous individuals identifying as LGBTQIA+ and their families most recently in private practice. I recently became a board member of the PFLAG Asheville, North Carolina chapter to help support parents and families of LGBTQIA+ youth. I personally identify as cisgender and gay.
