Bio

Life can be difficult and overwhelming. You don’t have to go it alone. Allow me to support you in discovering ways to care for yourself. When else during our busy weeks are we allowed to focus solely on ourselves? Taking time to care for oneself through therapy can be a deeply comforting experience.

I understand that each person has their own individual experiences and goals for a healthy life. I use traditional talk therapy techniques and believe in the client-first approach. I use techniques drawn from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solutions-Focused, and Strengths-based therapy modalities. I look to first understand my client’s needs and goals to best support on the journey to wellness.

I have experience working with adults in both individual and group therapy settings. I have worked with individuals dealing with substance use, anxiety, depression, family conflict, trauma, and grief. I earned my master’s in social work from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis, and a bachelor’s in psychology and sociology from Hope College. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2014.
