About us

I received my Master’s in Social Work (MSW) degree from Arizona State University with an emphasis on children and families. Since graduation, I have worked as a private practice mental health therapist and trauma therapist.

My professional services include helping youth and adults find healing from the effects of trauma. All types of trauma. Because of the correlation between trauma and addiction, I work regularly with individuals struggling with addiction and compulsive behaviors.

My desire to work in the field of trauma emerged from my training in Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) TRE is a body-based therapy that helps release chronic traumatic stress, physical tension and emotional trauma that gets stored in the body. In my training I have become a Level II Certified TRE Facilitator. From this foundation, I created START (Stress, Tension & Anxiety Reduction Therapy). This treatment helps develop healthy coping mechanisms for victims of trauma, abuse, or other adverse life events.
