About My Clients
I primarily work with clients who have experiences related to stress, adjustment, life transitions, depression, and anxiety.
My Background and Approach
Prior to my graduate studies, I completed my bachelor’s in psychology at Western Kentucky University. I went on to earn my Master’s in Psychological Science at WKU, where I split my time between the Child Development and Risk Behaviors Labs. While I have a deep interest in research, I wanted to use the science of psychology to directly help people improve their lives through therapy. I am currently in my fourth year of my doctoral training at Xavier University. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, giving me a breadth of experience in treating individuals across the lifespan. As a therapist, I take an approach that is individualized and client-centered. I develop a treatment plan collaboratively with my clients based on their expertise of their own lives. I draw my interventions from behavioral approaches and frequently incorporate self-compassion work with clients.
