Therapist

Making the decision to work on your mental health along with finding the right therapist for you can be overwhelming. I am grateful for the opportunity to come alongside you on this journey. My approach to counseling aims to be relational, mindfulness-based, trauma-informed, and compassionate. I tend to use a variety of techniques, theories, and modalities in sessions. My goal as a therapist is to meet my clients where they are at, and to create a safe place for you to learn and grow. With authenticity and honesty being two of my top values in life, I see these qualities as key components to the therapeutic relationship.

I have a passion for working with individuals of all ages who identify as neurodiverse. Living with neurodiversity can pose challenges, however, through our work I hope to empower those with neurodiversity to unmask and be their authentic selves. I love working with adolescents and early adults. Helping people in times of transition and guiding them through major changes in life is another area that I love to work with people in. I have a degree in both Clinical Mental Health Counseling as well as School Counseling, which has helped me when working with and advocating for students of all ages. I have worked with a wide variety of presenting problems that include, but are not limited to: Anxiety, Depression, ASD, ADHD, and Adjustment disorders.

Outside of the office, I love to be outdoors and spend time with friends and family. Not much can beat sitting outside while reading a good book or taking my two dogs on a walk. I also love listening to music, going to concerts, or staying in to watch a good movie while cuddling my cat.
