Feeling stuck, apathetic, overwhelmed, angry, worried, depressed, anxious, hopeless, or disconnected is exhausting and isolating. Many of our systems are designed to keep you this way, and you deserve more. I believe every person has an innate resilience, that helps us adapt to an ever changing world. I work to meet people where they are, connecting to the strength, courage, and insight already present and exploring areas for transformation and growth.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I received my bachelors and masters degree in social work from the University of Kansas. I have experience working with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, providing services that are culturally empowering and engage all aspects of a persons identity and experience.
The approach I take starts with curiosity, where did we learn the beliefs we carry with us and are they serving us today. I help those I work with expand their awareness and connection to their nervous system, process and resolve traumatic experiences, and improve their connection with others. I utilize practice interventions including EMDR, polyvagal theory, attachment theory, strengths and systems approaches.
I welcome individuals from LGBTQIA+ and CNM/polyam communities and take an affirming stance when working with individuals who do sex work.
I am fortunate to work with individuals 13 years and older on topics including but not limited to:

Self-esteem and identity
I am pleased to work with couples on a wide variety of topics that may include:
Increasing trust and security
