I am a licensed clinical social worker with advanced training and over a decade of experience as a DBT skills group facilitator and therapist. I am a trained teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion and a state-registered supervisor for master levels social workers seeking clinical licensure. I am a year or so in to my my learning about and implementation of Compassion- Focused Therapy.
I have spent the majority of my career working with survivors of trauma – specifically interpersonal violence including domestic and sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse – in non-profit settings. I have recently moved into private practice, where I offer DBT-informed and Compassion-Focused individual therapy, licensure supervision, and Mindful Self-Compassion classes for professional caregivers.
