She works with clients experiencing a range of symptoms including depression, anxiety, pre & postnatal depression and anxiety, chronic & terminal illness, grief & loss, emotion regulation, impulsive behaviors, social anxiety, relationship concerns, and life transitions.

She spent time working in non-profit management using a macro-level approach to contribute meaningfully to solving problems.
