I am passionate about serving survivors of complex trauma and am pursuing a focus on working with those suffering from dissociative, personality, and other trauma-related disorders from a psychodynamic perspective. I have supported those suffering from disorders such as Dissociative Identity Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and various others throughout my personal and professional life and while I firmly believe that each person’s story and pain is unique, these experiences have provided me with a significant understanding of the stigmas and complexity surrounding such diagnoses.
I have worked as a student intern at the Ross Institute for Trauma headed by Dr. Colin Ross as a therapist for trauma patients in a hospital setting and was trained in his Trauma Model approach. In addition, I have volunteered with the Poiema Foundation serving victims of sex trafficking and exploitation. I am currently a counseling student at Dallas Theological Seminary in pursuit of my LPC-Intern license while studying under Beth Harp, LPC-S.
When I'm not with my clients, I enjoy performing with the Dallas Symphony Choir as a classically trained opera singer. My other hobbies include music composition, researching major religions and cults, and picking on my cat.
