Seeking out therapy requires courage, and I’m so glad you’re taking the first step. Counseling can feel scary at first and even uncomfortable at times—but it can also be a rewarding and life-changing experience. Therapy is a place where you can fully explore your life, your relationships, and yourself to move toward your personal goals and wellbeing. Ultimately, you are the expert of your life—and as your therapist, I hope to help you define it on your own terms and tell your own empowered story. Life can be messy, and it’s rarely black and white. I’m here to walk alongside you to make sense of the mess and to explore those gray areas.
Therapy is a collaborative process that requires trust and vulnerability. I work from a person-centered, systems-informed perspective to ensure we are working toward your goals in a collaborative and intentional way. Because therapy isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” experience, we’ll work together to focus on what’s meaningful to you. I approach each client with compassion, curiosity, and empathy. Each of us has our own story to tell and unique lived experience in this world—it would be a privilege to hear and witness yours.
I am in the process of completing my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Bethel University. My therapeutic approach draws from Existential, Narrative, and Cognitive-Behavioral principles, acknowledging the unique identities and contexts we each hold. While I’m away from the office, I enjoy trying new restaurants and distilleries, curling up with a good book, and spending time outdoors.
