About Me

 I approach therapy with heart, humor and humility. I am woman of European descent and advocate for decolonizing spirituality. I am committed to and passionate about  trauma-informed intergenerational & intersectional healing.
I was raised on the occupied land of the Piscataway (Maryland).  As a child, parental illness within my family led me to begin studying traditional approaches to health and wellbeing. 
A  graduate of California  Institute of Integral Studies and trained in  Expressive Arts Therapy,   I practice  integrative trauma-informed therapy specializing in working with high sensitivity (HSPs) and trauma recovery. 
My approach is relational and deeply client-centered, rooted in appreciation for the unique unfolding and self-actualization of my clients.
