About My Clients

Do you experience intense emotions, often unexpectedly? Perhaps you are struggling with feelings of guilt, shame, or anger? Maybe you even take those feelings out on yourself, and you find yourself avoiding others. Are you having trouble with feeling torn between your beliefs versus your family’s beliefs? Do you live a rural community and experience discrimination or stigma because of who you are? Has this been leading to feeling anxious, trouble sleeping, or feeling overwhelmed?

My Background and Approach

I am a trauma-informed counselor who works with adolescents, young adults, and adults. I have specialized training on ERP from NOCD in treating OCD. I have been working in the counseling field since 2013. My experiences include school counseling, community based mental health agencies, residential treatment, teaching, and private practice. I am a member of and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, including presenting on how to best support LGBTQIA+ students as a school counselor. With your knowledge of yourself and my experience, we’ll work together to find a way to improve your life! Through my diverse work history, I have acquired many skills to offer to someone like you. We’ll gain insight into what is effecting your quality of life, and you’ll learn the tools to improve your situation. We’ll practice skills together, so you feel confident using them on your own! You will learn about the ways your brain is wired to connect and is designed to grow.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone has the capacity to grow and change. I value my client’s lived experiences and think that you are an expert on yourself. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I got into the field of counseling to be an advocate for those unable to advocate for themselves. As someone with an anthropology background, I know that the only constant in life is change and that cultures are always evolving; however, cultural change is achieved by the actions of community members. I want you to learn to advocate for yourself and live a life that aligns with your values. For me, work-life balance is incredibly important, and I see how that connects to your mental health. As such, I try to bring those ideas into my practice. That might look like encouraging you to play with your adopted pet, go for a hike, sitting outside to work, or whatever works for you!
