My Background


I am a licensed clinical professional counselor and have obtained my master’s degree from Adler University in 2019. I have worked in a variety of settings including community mental health programs, adult residential services, and private practice with experience ranging from children to adolescent to adult populations. I have been drawn to the counseling field since electing an “Intro to Psych” class in high school with growing inspiration from later professors and my own personal experiences with therapy that have only helped me solidify my path toward the profession. I am grateful for my own self-exploration process as it relates to what I value and choose to do professionally, and that is to guide clients in strengthening their own self-awareness to promote growth and lasting change.

I have found my strengths in helping clients navigate anxiety, depression, trauma, work-related stress, work-life balance, life transitions, along with dating and relationship issues. Additionally, I have followed my interests in perinatal mental health and completed training to better support clients through experiences in pregnancy and postpartum with specialized focuses in perinatal anxiety and mood disorders along with pregnancy/infant loss and grief. I am a certified perinatal mental health specialist through Postpartum Support International (PSI).

I currently see adult clients of various backgrounds and presenting experiences. My approach to therapy is integrative with foundations in strengths-based, culturally-sensitive, and trauma-informed care. I am a firm believer that each client holds power in their therapeutic journey and therefore, I aim to create a process that will be most meaningful and unique to them. I strive to ensure a safe, supportive space where clients feel heard, empowered, and ready to regain balance and wellness in their lives – a space centered around empathy, authenticity, and free of judgment.

I often integrate theories and interventions tailored to meet the needs of each client. I feel passionately about providing clients with concrete tools and coping skills to implement into their daily routines, often pulling from CBT, DBT, and ACT modalities. With effective tools in place, clients can delve deeper into their feelings, examine and restructure negative thought processes, and identify their own individual needs to foster healing, growth, and recovery. I also encourage mindfulness practices like guided meditations or paced breathing exercises, allowing clients to re-center and shift focus into the present moment.

In reflecting on my own journey as a younger therapist, I am constantly inspired and humbled by the meaningful connections and conversations I share with clients, being witness to both their challenges and discomfort along with their incredible growth and resilience. Moving forward, it is my intention to provide a safe space in navigating each unique journey and prioritizing every client’s well-being. Outside of this space, you can find me baking sweet treats or spending quality time with my even sweeter two cats!
