I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice, and am working on creating new ways of engaging with clients in their personal efforts to change existing behavior patterns that are not productive, or cause distress. I also use my natural sensitivity, intuition, empathy, and compassion to offer emotional comfort in my interactions. I draw on my vast experience as a former self-defense instructor, group therapist in violence intervention, prevention, and recovery, and crisis intervention work to meet with clients where they are at in their own journey to personal change and contentment.
Specialties: I provide revolutionary Boundary Intrusion Trauma recovery techniques, utilizing individualized physical self-defense and assertiveness training, as well as counseling involving issues with PTSD, Domestic Violence, Depression, Anxiety, Grief, LGBTQ, Divorce, Infertility, Chronic Illness, Chronic Pain, Sexual Abuse/Assault, Workplace Conflict, and Anger Management. I work with individuals, couples, and groups, and have experience in polyamourous partner counseling.
