Drawing from over two decades of clinical experience in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings, she is an expert in trauma recovery. She prioritizes helping clients heal from deep-seated pains and restore their sense of control, as well as navigating loss and grief, phobias, performance enhancement, and creative blocks.
