My specialties include group and individual therapy specific to religious trauma, spiritual abuse, and faith transitions/deconstruction, supporting those exploring gender identity and affirming care, and those seeking to explore a better feeling relationship with themselves, others, and the world. I work from trauma-informed, abolitionist, anti-capitalistic, harm reduction, fat liberation, and sex-positive lenses and work to address the impact of the systems we navigate in and how they impact mental health, opportunities, and access.

My training includes a master’s degree in social work from Augsburg University, and I am dually licensed as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) and as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC). I have a bachelor’s degree in theology.

I am a certified practitioner in AIR Network for complex PTSD and dissociation, and have done specialized trainings on religious trauma, and evaluation and letter writing in support of those pursuing gender affirming care. I have worked as a sexual assault advocate with youth, adults, and families with trauma, domestic/sexual/familial violence histories, and those who have experienced systemic disenfranchisement.

You are the expert of your own experience and deserve a therapeutic relationship that is safe and judgment-free in which to pursue your goals, discover your strengths, and work through the tough stuff while feeling supported and empowered. My approach is tailored to each individual’s wants, needs, and comfort. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a 15-minute consultation with me, please reach out!
