About My Clients

I engage every client from an integrated health lens, regardless of the need. All services are clinically informed, culturally competent, and customized to address your needs. I offer DBT skill building sessions, training for your group or agency on LGBTQIA competency and service provision, or consultation on the full range of clinical competencies.

My Background and Approach

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work (BSW) from the University of Arkansas, and my Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Michigan. Originally from Fayetteville, AR, I base my practice on the importance of the therapeutic alliance, and employ warmth, radical empathy, radical acceptance, and a wide range of therapeutic techniques to provide my clients with the safe, reflective, productive, and dynamic space necessary to facilitate real change. Deeply rooted in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, I also integrate elements of Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, and other modalities that engage the person in their environment. I have extensive training and competency working with individuals with diverse SOGIE (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Expression), and provide training and support on cultural competency with this population across the state.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an active member of the LGBTQIA community, I take pride in creating safe spaces to allow my clients to narrate their experiences from their unique cultural lenses. From concerns ranging from work stress, to family conflict, to navigating difficult decisions, I will help you achieve your best self through Mindfulness, radical empathy, and skill building.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
