The most important relationship we will ever have is the one with ourselves, developed and honed over a lifetime. Finding the right therapist with which to partner in this journey is essential. I bring a compassionate, empathic and empowering approach to working with clients who have a history of trauma, loss, shame, as well as those living with chronic diseases, and depression. I fell in love with coaching as it beautifully harmonizes with and enriches my training as a trauma therapist in helping people get unstuck and move through the process of grief.

I have spent the last 20 years working in the field of mental health as well as in a wide range of acute care settings including outpatient medical and mental health clinics, hospitals, including the trauma, ICU’s, maternity, and ER departments. As both a Health Coach and Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, I bring a holistic approach to understanding how trauma affects the body and mind, and how we can start to heal from the inside out with the right support and therapeutic approach. Additionally, having been a care-giver, I know the challenges and pitfalls that caregivers face in the midst of trying to tend to their own self care. The pandemic has magnified our collective sense of isolation, disconnection, and fear. Finding adaptive coping mechanisms to help us feel empowered with a sense of hope is paramount right now.
