I earned a Masters Degree in Social Work from the Smith College School for Social Work in Northampton, Massachusetts. I have subsequently participated in the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) Fellowship program, as well the Division 39 (Society for Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychology) Scholars Program.
I have significant experience working with individuals impacted by relational trauma as well as with individuals addressing gender and sexual identity concerns. Additionally, my graduate education included work at the Atlanta VA Medical Center, providing trauma-focused treatment to veterans and active duty service members struggling with PTSD as a result of combat trauma and/or military sexual trauma.
Prior to pursuing a career in psychotherapy, I spent nearly a decade working in the field of international peacebuilding. With a MA in International Peace Studies and extensive time spent overseas working with women and men in communities ravaged by war and conflict, I bring a deep appreciation for culture, power, and privilege to my practice. My work is guided by a conviction that personal and societal transformations are interwoven.
