Life is ever changing, and with change can bring a plethora of other emotions including stress, depression and anxiety. It takes strength to seek help when we are feeling most vulnerable. I aim to create a safe, warm, and supportive connection with another person and use that connection to cultivate change. I’d like to help you become empowered to accomplish your own goals and to take control of your life. All transitions are difficult, whether it is anticipated or unexpected change. As adults, we have many responsibilities to uphold. This can include career, relationships, and family, emotional and physical health.

It is incredibly natural to feel overwhelmed in our present world. As mounting global stressors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and impending climate disaster compound the everyday stressors inherent to work, school, and relationships, it can feel like your emotional well-being is as difficult as it is important to maintain. It is my privilege to support people who want to do the brave work of releasing patterns of stuckness and embracing new, life-affirming narratives. I believe every human has the potential to heal towards deeper alignment with purpose, and am here for those seeking accompaniment in their transformation.

Imagine a life where you can harness your strengths and find more joy in life. You may be a family struggling with stressors related to uncertainty and changes. Your child's school may have reached out to you to discuss concerns related to their academic and social emotional wellness. You may find yourself questioning your relationship with your child and wondering what their behaviors are telling you. It might be difficult to get up in the morning and stay present throughout the day. That ray of sunshine may feel like it's far in the distance. If so, I am here to help your child, teen, and family.

I have been working in the field of psychotherapy since 2004, helping clients cope primarily with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and life changes. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Missouri, and I taught Language Arts on the high school level for two years. As a teacher, the limits of the classroom environment prevented me from reaching many of my troubled students, which led me to pursue a graduate degree from Loyola University-Chicago in Community Counseling.

Speaking to adults… Joseph Campbell defines Compassion as “…an immediate participation in the suffering of another to such a degree that you forget yourself and spontaneously do what is necessary.” With hybrid training as therapist, teacher, and coach, I compassionately support individuals exactly where they are in their life. Whether one wishes to address past trauma, wants to contemplate a career decision and change of environment, or wants support with relationships and life’s many unpredicted events, I create the space to do so at the pace and depth that the individual wants and is ready to successfully take on.
