I am passionate about meeting people where they are physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I believe that each and every person already holds the keys to their own healing, and that I am here to help empower others to identify and utilize the assets that already exist within themselves and their lives. I have striven in my own life, both professionally and personally, to understand how trauma impacts one’s mental health and wellbeing, and have worked to identify what tools and resources exist to heal these traumas. I have been trained in EMDR, and I believe that it is only through healing our mental health and our lives that we can truly begin to address the problem of addiction. Additionally, I am especially passionate about understanding and addressing the intersectionality that exists between oppression, trauma, and the LGBTQ+ community.
My professional background consists of receiving my Bachelors of Science from The Ohio State University in Human Ecology, and completing my Masters in Social Work at the University of Toledo with a concentration in mental health treatment. Additionally, I am currently involved with the Lucas County Trauma Informed Care Coalition and have worked in partnership with them to develop trainings designed to raise awareness and education surrounding trauma informed care with the LGBTQ+ community. Additionally, I have been involved in the creation of the NW Ohio LGBTQ+ Coalition and ongoing community advocacy work in the Toledo, Oh region.
“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.” – Brené Brown
