I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Northern Illinois University and my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from NIU. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and hold additional certifications in Trauma Informed Counseling and LGBT Studies. I have conducted extensive research in the effects of prejudice in marginalized communities, and ensuring safe classrooms in both primary and higher learning institutions.
My specialties include other specialties include: Trauma/PTSD, LGBTQIA+, gender identity, sexual orientation, Kink/Poly/non-monogamy, and Animal-Assisted Therapy.
Using an integrative approach with evidence based practices, I change my counseling style based on who you are as a person. Every person is uniquely different; counseling should be approached the same way. Together, let’s find what works for you.
