I bring a presence of warm compassion, curiosity, authenticity, humor, patience, respect, honesty, and safety to my work. I use a variety of interventions and tools to help you navigate your healing journey such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapies (MBCT), Dissociative Identity Disorder Treatment (DID), Trauma Informed Reiki, Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Breath work, and Creative therapies. Celebrating my clients is the best part of my job. You are in full control of this your journey, I would be honored to be your witness, celebrator, and guide.
I graduated from USC with my Master's Degree in Social Work. I then got the honor of working alongside diverse populations such as refugees, latino and native individuals, cps involved families, community organizations and more. I feel that this encouraged a more in depth understanding of diversity training which allows a broader cultural understanding and invitation.
I then pursued a deeper understanding of root cause for many mental health disorders which led me into the world of Trauma Informed care. I received training and full certification from the EMDR Institute. From there my understanding of trauma grew, which led me down the path of Ego state work as well as the further need for somatic health and processing. I then received full certification for Reiki and Mindfulness practices. I believe in integrative work which means out of all of these options, training and knowledge, I follow your lead to see what best suits you.
