About

"The best way out is always through" --Robert Frost. While noting we have remarkable capacities to cope, strive, and even thrive through challenges, there are many times in life we all find ourselves coming up short. It is in these times, we could all benefit seeking support from others. I have been helping people per aspera, or through difficulty, in a therapeutic capacity for over 14 years. I am curious by nature about people's unique strengths and struggles and enjoy the process of developing strategies for working through difficulty.
I am an LSCSW with a Masters in Social Work from the University of Kansas. I am well versed in evidence-based practices that could be utilized given the presenting problem, including: cognitive behavioral therapy, systematic desensitization/exposure therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
While I am rooted in these approaches, my work is individualized. I understand the ways in which your experiences are shared by others; however, I also recognize your difficult experiences are stories all your own, and likewise, I seek to help you get through them in a manner all your own.
