It is a privilege to be invited into someone’s story– whether it be a few pages or an entire chapter. I hope to enter into someone’s story during the editing process and empower them to share their story, no matter how beautiful, messy, and unexpected it may be. Through empowerment we find truth, and through truth we find healing. My hope is that through the telling of our stories, as raw and unadulterated as they are, we can come together and find healing and peace.

Since trauma work can be a painful part of the story-telling process, I have specialized training in Trauma Integration Therapy and Narrative Story-Telling. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and working towards a certification in EMDR.

My style of therapy revolves around an emotionally focused approach with narrative elements. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2020, and am expected to meet all requirements for full licensure by 2022. Additionally, I also have a decade of experience with the US Navy in Combat Medicine and Mental Health and have a special heart for military and first responder families, couples, and individuals.
