I aim to create a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship while my clients work toward wholeness where they feel wounded. Symptoms of anxiety or depression often usher us into difficult life change that can eventually lead toward improved emotional health. I work from an eclectic theoretical orientation using attachment theory, Internal Family Systems, Narrative-Focused Trauma Care, and faith if clients desire. I utilize Strengths-Based theory with teens, which is an evidence-based approach to suicide prevention. I specialize in teens and work well with high-performing women who struggle with anxiety.
I’m a former high school counselor, growing my therapy practice since 2020. My journey in the profession began 20 years ago as a Psychology major working in campus ministry, followed by employment in community mental health and adoption agencies. I completed an M.Ed. in 2011 and then completed full licensure as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor in 2021.
I see individual clients age 12 and up who desire a warm and friendly dialogue while wanting to re-discover hope, purpose and beauty in the midst of their struggle. Healing takes time and does not always follow a linear set of treatment goals. I enjoy helping clients navigate struggle while flourishing into a more emotionally healthy version of themselves.
