Grieving can take on many forms for every individual and the timeframe can look different as well. Trauma can also be experienced in many ways and manifest in ways that are unfamiliar and confusing to process. I am looking forward to helping you on your journey towards healing.
I am currently a Corporal with Lower Allen Township Police Department and have been serving my community for about 19 years. I also come from a family of first responders. Since 2019, I have been part of a critical incident/peer support team. As part of my work in law enforcement, I have received training and certifications in suicide intervention, trauma informed principles, crisis intervention, and psychological first aid.
I graduated with a Master’s in Social Work from Shippensburg University in May 2022. My experience in counseling comes from working with individuals who have experienced repeated trauma throughout their lives. I’ve also worked with individuals who’ve struggled with drug and alcohol addictions and helped them develop patterns towards successful living. I completed EMDR training in March 2023.
I enjoy working with individuals from law enforcement and other first responder disciplines as well as those who support them in these roles.
