Over eight years of clinical experience working with attachment, complex trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, life transitions, and general stress management in adolescents and adults has afforded me a unique perspective. I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2004, and my MSW at the Tulane School of Social Work in 2009. Prior to returning to school for my Master’s, I worked in the fields of substance abuse prevention, education, and sexual assault survivor advocacy. I am trained in EMDR, Maternal Mental Health (including perinatal mood disorders), and hold a Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher certificate. I am a member of the Adolescent-Young Adult Cancer Clinic treatment team at Ochsner, and I am currently working towards my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certificate at Balance Yoga & Wellness in New Orleans.
