About

I enjoy working with teens [14+] and adults, but especially love working with the college-age population. I also have a passion for working with people who have experienced complex trauma and people with physical disabilities and other marginalized/misunderstood groups.
I prefer an integrative approach when working with my clients and do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach. With this said, I do draw heavily from a client-centered attachment-based psychodynamic approach that integrates aspects of cognitive and existential therapies.
I myself hold a Christian worldview, but particularly enjoy a diverse caseload and working with/learning from people from all backgrounds. I have been legally blind since birth and have a special interest in the intersection of disability and mental health. I have a heart for adventure and love to travel and explore new places, especially near the ocean.
