About My Clients

I work with people who have been feeling down, worried, disconnected or those who want to learn more about themselves and become "unstuck." I also work with those who have had traumatic experiences.

My Background and Approach

I completed my training at Roosevelt University in 2013 and have been practicing in the field ever since! I am certified both as a National counselor and EMDR provider. My background includes work both in community mental health and outpatient services. My approach is an active, collaborative one. Our first initial sessions will include time spent building trust and rapport with one another. We will work on developing goals for treatment as well as structuring session to meet your needs. I often will recommend techniques and/or exercises to practice in between session. The theories and techniques I draw from are evidence based approaches. I strive to maintain current in my work with you. This includes ongoing participation in trainings, consultations, and peer lead groups.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am committed to providing mental health services without discrimination against, or harassment of any person. It is of the utmost importance that you will be treated with respect and dignity regarding your worldview and values. I work with all genders, sexual orientations, religions, races, ethnicities, and relationship structures. I acknowledge that as a white cis-gendered straight therapist, I hold biases and power within my role as a therapist. My personal and professional work includes learning and receiving ongoing training that will help increase my awareness of myself well as approaches which are both culturally responsive and address the many intersects of your identity! I identify as feminist, progressive, and when not at work, I enjoy spending time with my two cats Walt and Reese.
