I am certified to provide ketamine assisted therapy for the reduction of depressive symptoms, trauma related symptoms and other forms of mental distress. I am also certified in an intervention that provides relief and recalibration of the nervous system through filtered music (SSP). I obtained my graduate degree in counseling psychology with a specialization in forensics and addiction. I hold additional certification in the treatment of trauma. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of counseling using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and other evidenced based practices. My experience has been attained in a variety of settings from hospitals, clinics to private practice.

I am happy to discuss my experience in the field and I welcome any questions you may have regarding the process of therapy.
