About Me

 

I am a licensed clinical social worker, certified alcohol and drug counselor (II) and certified TRE® provider. I received my master’s degree in Clinical Social Work in 2000 and have been working steadily in the field for over 25 years.

In that time, I have worked in community behavioral health, addictions and integrated treatment programs providing direct service, program management and supervision. I have also provided co-located psychotherapy in a family medicine and primary care clinic.

In private practice I have expanded my specialty in treating trauma as it relates to mental health, addiction, and chronic illness. My focus of treating trauma has been a continual progression to an integrated treatment of the mind and the body. I have incorporated Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Somatic Experiencing interventions. I now have a primary focus on EMDR as a treatment modality. I am also a certified TRE® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) provider for people that prefer to find a somatic approach to healing.
