My Background

Although I have lived in Lexington most of my life, I consider myself a New Yorker since I was born there. I went to the University of Kentucky for my undergraduate and graduate degrees to become a licensed counselor.  I became a therapist since it seemed like a very natural option for me. I have always been the nurturer and helper as a teenager and was the therapist among my friends in school. I am an advocate of changing the mentality of “what is wrong with me” to “what happened to me.” We are just experiencing the natural consequences of things that were done to us – trauma and mental health challenges are not a reflection of who we are as a person.  

When I am not working, I love to stalk my two cats, making them into cat models and petting them much to their annoyance. I enjoy going on walks, especially in the fall and look for a particularly crunchy set of leaves to walk through, curl up with my kindle and a cup of hot chocolate, and bake. I express my love to others through sharing my baked goods!   

My Approach & Philosophy

    • My specialties include: Anxiety, PTSD/CPTSD, Trauma (sexual and childhood trauma), working with immigrant families, and depression.
    • I am EMDR trained and use IFS therapy along with CBT and person-centered therapy.
    • I bring who I am to therapy and I encourage everyone to do the same.
    • I am very authentic and will never tell you to try something that I would not do myself. 
    • I make therapy fun.
    • I believe that you can do almost anything you set your mind to if you have the right support and someone believing in you.

    Fun Facts

    • I love the heat – I run my space heater even during the summertime.
    • I love stuffed animals.
    • I am trilingual – I love learning different languages and foods from other cultures.
