Whatever reason brought you here, I am inspired by your bravery; you’ve taken the first step! It’s important to me that you have autonomy over your therapy. Here’s some insight into me to help you decide if I am the right person to accompany and support you on your journey.
I am passionate about finding the root causes of undesired emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. I encourage healing through non-judgmental compassion, education, and mindfulness. I typically practice through a feminist, trauma-informed theoretical lens, although I embrace eclectic approaches to best suit your unique identity. From this lens, my approach includes but is not limited to: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I believe people are the product of the world around them. Together, we can explore familial, cultural, and social factors—and how these issues influence you, both positively and negatively. When we understand the ways we can be influenced, we can begin to facilitate empathy for our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, and that of others. I believe that we are always trying to survive, and sometimes we do not know that the choices we make for our survival may actually cause harm.
I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and received my Bachelor of Science in Education & Human Sciences from The University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am in the process of pursuing my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from DePaul University. I am a therapist-in-training, forever student, advocate, Chicagoan, dog mom, and human. Here’s a place for us to be human together.
