People are an incredible part of this world, and every person deserves the chance to see their dignity and worth. This is why I strive to create a 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. Having had my own life changed for the better by the therapeutic journey, I am passionate about bringing mental health and wellbeing to others, specializing in work with young adults and college-aged people.
I trained at Moody Theological Seminary, and strive to serve as a stopgap for the rift that often exists between the Christian faith and mental health. Hurt at the hands of church and clergy is real and all too prevalent, particularly for women and LGBTQIA+ people. This is why I serve these communities through my work as a clinician. Depending on the client’s desire, faith can play a major role in our sessions, no role at all, or anywhere in between.
I am currently a Clinical Intern with Clarity Clinic as I work toward becoming fully licensed under their supervision. My certifications and trainings include the Foundational Safe Zone certification through the Safe Zone Project, FEMA’s Independent Study trainings for emergency response, and the Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper certification through the QPR Institute. I am registered with both the American Association of Christian Counselors and the American Counseling Association.
While my favored therapeutic modalities are Feminist and Adlerian therapy, I often engage Client-Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Existential Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, and Strength-Based Therapy.
