Biography: 

Professionally, my background includes having worked several years as the lead trauma social worker at a Level II trauma center. In that role, I witnessed the situations encountered by those in the fire service and the emotional struggles that can result. I have had extensive training and experience with treating trauma and anxiety. Now in private practice, I have the opportunity to focus much of my time on supporting behavioral health within the fire service.

Many of my patients are looking to address concerns such as PTSD, grief, generalized anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and guilt. Utilizing a patient-centered focus, I assist individuals in finding clarity, work through complex emotions/traumatic experiences, change negative thinking patterns and find new ways to cope with difficult situations.
