Every person deserves the chance to see their inherent dignity and worth. That’s why I strive to create a therapeutic space where anyone can feel safe to navigate who they are, what they believe, and what they have experienced.

My approach to counseling is rooted in empowering, advocating for, and celebrating the personhood of my clients. It is my desire to serve young adults and college-aged people from every walk of life, helping them find the tools and build the skills they need to live a more fulfilling and joy-filled life.

Hurt at the hands of the church and clergy is real and all too prevalent, particularly for women and LGBTQIA+ people. I am passionate about helping those who have experienced this pain find hope and healing; It is my desire to serve as a stopgap for the rift that often exists between the Christian faith and mental health. Depending on the client’s desire, faith can play a major role in our sessions, no role at all, or anywhere in between.

My certifications and training include the Foundational Safe Zone certification through the Safe Zone Project, FEMA’s Independent Study training for emergency response, and the Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper certification through the QPR Institute. I am registered with the American Counseling Association.

While my preferred therapeutic modalities are Feminist and Adlerian therapy, I engage several theories in my work, including Person-Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Existential Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, and Strength-Based Therapy. Depending on the client’s desire, I also employ Christian counseling and clinical biblical counseling.
