I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist and an EMDR [could this be an obvious hyperlink to a “what is EMDR?” video from the resource page?] trained clinician. I have spent most of my training and education focused on the treatment of trauma. I also hold certificates in Mindfulness Therapies as well as Integrative Medicine for Mental Health. My focus is on trauma recovery and optimal mental health using therapy that is mindful, holistic, and practical.
I am also trained in the following modalities: Trauma Focused CBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I completed my Master’s Degree in 2013. I have worked in private practice, community mental health, and residential settings.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked as a social worker and writer focused on refugee immigration issues. I’ve worked with refugees in South Africa, Tanzania, Ireland, Indianapolis, and Fort Wayne, Indiana.
