I currently provide clinical and forensic services to clients who are incarcerated where I work as a Mental Health Consultant and have over 15 years of experience in the mental health field.  I have worked with clients in a variety of settings which include Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare/ PSRB, the Department of Youth Services, New York City Criminal Court, Peace Health Emergency Department, MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility and at the Federal Defenders of New York where I also provided mitigation and re-entry services on behalf of my clients.

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and currently hold my Clinical Social Work Associate (CSWA) certificate in the State of Oregon.  I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University with a minor in Law and my Bachelor’s Degree in Literature from Chapman University.   As a result of my diverse background in film and literature studies I value diversity and creativity within my therapeutic process.

I am currently studying to be a yoga teacher. My goal is to teach yoga to first responders and essential care givers who have experienced trauma in the workplace.
