I strongly believe everyone deserves to be loved and seen for who they are. Sometimes, people need to know they have a safe place to just “be”. Each person brings something unique that makes the world better. I believe that everyone tries their best to cope with the difficulties of life, but having a helping hand to find healthy coping skills can make a difference. It is humbling and honoring to be invited into this role as a therapist.
At CARE Counseling, I enjoy working with adults and adolescents who have challenges with self-esteem, grief and loss, trauma, substance use, anxiety, depression, stress management, relationships, family relationships, health and wellbeing, disordered eating, and life transitions.
My therapeutic work is guided by cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), person-centered approaches, motivational interviewing, logotherapy, and family systems.
I received my Master’s degree in Counseling at Bethel University and I am currently under supervision while working towards clinical licensure. My internship experience was working with college students in the Therapeutic Services Department at North Central University and with women who experienced co-occurring substance use and mental health concerns living in a residential setting. My undergraduate degree was in Psychology from Bethel University, where I also received my Drug and Addiction Counseling Certificate. I am a LADC (Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor).
I look forward to meeting you!
