a Licensed Clinical Social Worker originally from Southern California now residing in North Carolina (talk about a change!) It is an honor to have you here. Your story matters deeply to me, and I would be honored to be a part of your healing journey.

My desire is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. I believe each person's story is unique and contains remarkable beauty within it. I also believe that each person's way of processing and achieving progress is individual to their story.

My goal is to help you make sense of what progress looks like for you and make steps to attain that together. No matter where you are in the healing progress, I will work with you to find hope, health, and healing.

let's work together

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Social Work from Baylor University, a Master's degree in Social Work from UNC Chapel Hill, a license in Clinical Social Work, and over five years working as a social worker in a variety of settings. Before beginning my practice, I worked in foster care agencies, human trafficking safe homes, refugee mental health clinics, and mental health advocacy centers. I additionally hold a specialized certification in TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

In addition to my work in direct trauma care, I strive to bring mental health tips and relief worldwide through a modern mental health approach. With a following of over 300,000 on social media, I aim to eliminate the stigma around mental health and promote healing for all with accessible mental health tips and tricks to promote self-growth and self-care. 

Through this variety of work and many years of training, I have developed a specialty of working with children, adolescents, and young adults in helping heal past trauma, depression, anxiety, school/work related stress, and more.

I have worked with clients of all ages, stages, and places in the world. My previous experience includes working with those who have faced trauma and deep wounds in their life. My specialities include working with children, teenagers, and young adults to help them achieve personal hope, health, and healing. I have a passion for walking alongside those who are struggling with regulating emotions, working through past trauma, or navigating present anxiety. I enjoy then helping clients understand the steps we can take to help them flourish.
