I am a clinical social worker who never had any intention of working in addictions but has ended up managing a treatment program for chemically dependent women -- and loving it. My clinical interests generally include trauma, sexuality, gender, body image, and self-efficacy. Most of my training has been in cognitive-behavioral interventions, but I'm deeply interested in psychodynamic and existential theories of practice. 

When I'm not at work you may find me out and about with my Boston terrier, Ellie, whipping up something delicious in the kitchen, drinking something fancy, writing, getting indignant about social injustice, doing yoga, plotting my next chance to travel, and trying to strike a balance between healthy self-reflection and getting stuck in my own head.
