I started doing this healing work 13 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 from Hunter College School of Social Work 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/IFS, 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, 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 at EMPOWERED Spaces.
