CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKER
CA: LCS #24023 | OH: LISW-S I.1901637
I have been working with survivors of trauma, abuse, and extreme experiences since 1998. I ground my understanding of how people work – and how they heal – in human physiology & Buddhist practices more than in traditional psychology. Adverse experiences affect people physically and emotionally, often beneath language’s ability to express. Buddhism studies the mind on a practical, personal level, and the practices can be of benefit regardless of religion or spiritual belief.
I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples. I attended The Ohio State University for my graduate degree (’02), lived and practiced in Los Angeles for some time (2007-2019) before returning to Columbus. I think Columbus is a pretty great town.
