I started doing this healing work 12 years ago during a time in my life where I was searching for concrete skills and purpose to help myself. I began as a crisis counselor at a peer led, grassroots organization and quickly found my calling. I went on to serve at many organizations and non-profits that provide therapeutic services for women & LGBTQ folks. I have been able to serve my LGBTQ+, feminist, sex worker, and survivor community as a trauma therapist, sex educator, facilitator, intake coordinator, and community organizer, and more recently, career coach.
I received my LMSW in 2017 and went on to be trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy by the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. Then, getting my LCSW in 2020. In 2021, I began my training to become EMDR certified.
I specialize in treating trauma and PTSD/c-PTSD for women and queer & trans folks, using EMDR, parts work, Polyvagal theory, and feminist therapy practices to help clients come home to themselves.
I am proud to be an out queer and survivor therapist. I currently live and practice on occupied Osage, Sioux, Kaskaskia and Kickapoo land, at the confluence of the Missouri, Mississippi, and Illinois Rivers. I see clients online and in so called St. Louis, MO.
