My Story

I have always been passionate about working with young people. Growing up, I saw that those around me did not have access to therapy or mental health supports, and I witnessed the negative impacts that this had on their functioning. I discovered social work in college and immediately knew this is what I was meant to do. I love working with children and adolescents to process their thoughts, feelings and experiences to improve their overall health and well-being and support them in living full lives. I am particularly passionate about treating depression in children in adolescents, trauma and its impact on the brain, and mental health education and awareness.

My Eyas Landing

I was drawn to Eyas Landing due to its multidisciplinary approach to treatment. I love that it’s a one-stop-shop for children and families!!

My Professional Goals

  1. To continue to grow in my clinical skills.
  2. Become fully credentialed in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
  3. To learn more about EMDR (rapid eye movement therapy).
