About

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to understand your own story and break free from the traps that hold us back from change. You are brave because you are here. One quote that resonates with me is from Carl Whitaker, who once wrote, “Until you break with your patterns, the rut continues to deepen. Life goes on, but living dies”. Throughout my career, I have witnessed how being unheard and misunderstood creates a sense of feeling judgment and shame. I want to help by creating a space for healing and advancement by honoring that those experiences are a source of pain.
I am committed to honoring your beliefs and approach each client with acceptance. I tailor my approach to you and feel grateful to witness your journey. Through my genuine presence and authentic approach, I create a space for courage, humor, collaboration, and offer challenges to empower clients towards the growth and wellness they are seeking.
I received my masters degree in marriage and family therapy from Mount Mercy University and I am a temporary licensed marriage and family therapist. Prior to completing my degree, I spent the last 10 years counseling teenagers and families that have been involved with the juvenile court system. I have experience working with individuals, couples & families.
