1st Response

& Veterans

My therapeutic style is founded on a trauma-informed approach. I have been fortunate to work alongside first responders as a Crisis Interventionist for the Mesa and Chandler Fire Departments and as an evaluator for CIT. I am CISM certified and I have worked both as a counselor and a peer support specialist for Fire, EMS, Dispatch, PD and Active Duty Military. I am a military brat, I served in the Army, and I married a Marine. These experiences have helped me to develop a well-rounded perspective on the multiple aspects of military and first responder service.

When we experience an emotion, there is a physical, visceral reaction. Whether it is obvious, like a flinch, or subtle like muscles tensing in the neck and shoulders, our body experiences the event. In the case of trauma, the event causes such an intense emotional response that the body holds onto that reaction as a way of remembering and keeping us safe in the future. The memory becomes a warning signal. Unfortunately this often leads to a lot of false alarms. Suddenly tense shoulders from normal, daily stress triggers a panic response. Even when the mind is not consciously aware, the body is always responding and communicating. Through therapeutic yoga, people learn to reclaim their bodies through awareness, choice, and empowerment.

LGBTQ+

I am an LGBTQ+ member and ally. I have several years of experience working with individuals across the spectrum of the LGBTQ community. I specialize in working with the Transgender population, exploring gender identity and development, and the many nuances of the transition process. I work both with clients in therapy and as an advocate in the community to address the unique social and cultural challenges the LGBTQ+ population faces.
