I find myself incredibly inspired by the unique human ability to build a meaningful and authentic life despite the darkness that many of us face. I view my role as a psychologist as two-fold: validating that you are doing the best you can given the skills and resources you already have, while also empowering you to grow through new ways of thinking about and coping with difficult circumstances. I strive to work collaboratively with you to examine your values, foster resilience to overcome challenges, and move towards a life of purpose.
At Care Counseling, I provide individual therapy to female, male, and non-binary adults. I have a particular interest in working with struggles related to depression, anxiety, perfectionism, and identity development. An individualized and person-centered approach to therapy is central to my work with clients. Outside of this, my approach integrates aspects of acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and positive psychology.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences and Psychology at Drake University and my Master of Science and Doctorate of Psychology at Georgia Southern University. I am currently under supervision while working towards licensure as a Clinical Psychologist. I grew up in Wisconsin and have spent portions of my life in Iowa, Georgia, and Kansas. I am a Midwesterner at heart and am happy to now call Minnesota my home! Outside of work, I find joy in exercising, trying new restaurants, and playing with my adorable Shiba Inu pup, Koda. I look forward to hearing your story and walking alongside you in your journey towards healing, growth, and transformation.
