Clinical

Recognizing the diversity of human experience, I have sought varied and comprehensive clinical experiences. I have worked in numerous settings including in home-based care, a forensic clinic, a refugee shelter, community mental health, a university counseling center, and a VA. I have taken a particular interest in working with individuals experiencing complex conditions such as PTSD, psychosis, depersonalization, shifts in consciousness, spiritual difficulties, and complex trauma.

I typically integrated various modalities into my clinical work such as acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and narrative therapy. I also work collaboratively with other professionals to provide holistic and integrative care the individual. I often make referrals to other professionals such as case managers, psychiatrists, energy healers, and massage therapists.
