I hold a Masters in Social Work from Metropolitan State University of Denver and is a licensed social worker (LSW.0009922124).
I am a registered psychotherapist (NLC.0107688) and offers a trauma-informed, attachment-based approach to individual, family and groups, drawing from over 10 years of previous clinical psychotherapy training and experience.
Over the past 10+ years I have facilitated many group processes: from restorative justice and mediating conflict resolution circles to over 200 men’s groups under the supervision of renowned men’s therapists Jayson Gaddis and Reuvain Bacal.
I grew up in Italy and understands what it takes to find your way in an unfamiliar place and the grit required to move through life’s hardest experiences.
I specialize in emotional, generational and psychological trauma, attachment dynamics and family systems. I offer Brainspotting, a treatment method which utilizes focused-mindfulness to process and discharge the core neurophysiological sources of trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms.
My approach is psychodynamic (focused on early-life and past traumatic events) while keeping my aim on present action. My therapy is empathic, experiential and supportive.
