My Story

Sometimes we are looking for someone to hold our hope for us. Throughout my life, I have been drawn to the story; the lore of identity, the narrative of families, and the truth inside the metaphor. I feel it is of the utmost importance to provide people with a safe space to share their truth, a place to be honest and seen while challenging the stories we tell ourselves. As a person, I hope to be a lantern that can help to illuminate the way for you to reclaim your story.

As a therapist, I received my bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Columbia International University in 2012, followed by my master’s in clinical counseling in 2016, after which I worked in high-acuity inpatient treatment centers for five years. Within this work, I have focused on acute and chronic eating disorder recovery; and I specialize in disordered eating and follow a HAES model to support the restoration of internal beliefs around the complexity of body image and maladaptive coping through disordered eating. I have a true heart for supporting sexual trauma victims in finding their voices while reclaiming and rebuilding their stories and I intend to show up with complete compassion and authenticity.

As a trauma therapist, first, I believe in working with many clinical approaches to find what is best for your healing. Within ACT therapy, mindfulness, polyvagal support, and an attachment lens, I can help you to find a way through your body’s reactivity. As the body reacts both neurobiologically and psychologically to heightened stress – especially in the face of perceived danger after trauma – creating a safe space and trusting environment is essential to the work of both present and future healing.

When I am not working, I love to practice yoga, read melancholy Russian literature, and go to live music around Asheville. I have a heart for communal living and love supporting my local organic Co-op through volunteer work and community, and engaging in eating disorder recovery supports and sexual abuse recovery resources in our community while trying to build up the love and tear down the stigma. I love nature with my whole heart and am somewhere on a mountain most weekends.
