You are taking a courageous step forward in your healing process to make your first appointment! I am versed in a variety of empirically supported treatments such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD (CPT), and like to blend multiple approaches in the way that will bring about the best results for you.

I tailor my approach to meet the needs of those who come to see me, but offer every individual the respect and compassion they deserve. Maybe you are seeking insight and awareness for the purpose of personal growth. Perhaps you are looking to address a particular issue and need someone who can be goal directed and offer specific skills and feedback. Maybe it's hard to name just what is going on and this is one of the reasons you have decided to seek help. No two people come to therapy for the same reason because no two people are the same.

In all my relationships, including and especially with my clients in therapy, I seek to operate from a place of compassion and curiosity. As vulnerable and painful as it can be to dismantle old patterns, it is even more rewarding to see clients establish new, more functional ways of being (relationally, emotionally, cognitively, physically, and spiritually). My goal is to provide a safe space to collaborate and walk alongside clients as they seek to heal, grow, and change into more of the person they want to be.

I work with adult and older teen clients who are experiencing depression, anxiety, addictions (to substances and/or compulsive behaviors) and who are recovering from traumatic experiences. I believe that your natural self underlies any issues you may bring to therapy, and that our job as we work together is to help you rediscover and live from that natural, free, and open-hearted self.

I love working with clients who have a readiness to gain greater self awareness, and those who have a deep desire to know and accept themselves. I have a heart for working with individuals from the LGBTQIA+ community, as a member of the community myself, and deeply value the healing power of trauma work. I also love working with individuals who might benefit from a more experiential approach. I find so much value in the power of creative activities that help engage the client in effective and meaningful ways.

Many of my clients came to therapy because they didn't feel confident, safe, or at peace in themselves, how they connect with others, or how they fit in the world. I specialize in trauma, anxiety, and identity issues. These areas are tied to the core of who you are and how you interact in the world. At times, it may be difficult to move forward and you may feel stuck. You may feel disconnected, unfulfilled, or overwhelmed. It may affect relationships, work, and your sense of self. It can be difficult to find your way back to yourself and the life you want to build. I am here to help navigate that journey.

Confronting what life throws at us can feel overwhelming and I am committed to supporting you without judgement. I received my master’s degree with academic distinction in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University in 2023. Before pursuing my mental health passion, I was a professional violinist, and I have a deep understanding of the challenges that come with the pursuit of an intensive career, as well as an appreciation for the amount of pressure and anxiety job performance can create. Working through tendencies like overthinking or perfectionism can both enhance your performance and overall quality of life.

My clients are often those struggling with anxiety, self-worth, and life transitions/adjustments. I also have particular specialities and experience with grief, substance addictions or those who are the loved one of a person with addictions, and trauma. When you read the word "trauma" it doesn't have to mean only abuse, car accidents, etc. There are various stressful life experiences that register as trauma, such as divorce, neglect/abandonment, health related issues and diagnoses, miscarriages, and many more. All that is needed from you is a desire to be present in the counseling space. The rest we walk through together.

Prior to beginning clinical practice, I taught high school students in Metro Nashville where I was fortunate to learn from the resiliency of young people. This invaluable time eventually lead me to pursuing counseling. My clinical experience has primarily been within community centers serving diverse populations, which has informed my perspective as a culturally-competent, dynamic practitioner. Areas of clinical focus are academic issues, addiction, anxiety, codependency, depression, LGBTQ+ identities, life transitions, PTSD, and trauma.
