I operate from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, inclusive lens and believe wholly that you are the expert in your own experiences, beliefs, and needs. I reject the idea that because I hold a degree, I am somehow more qualified in understanding your life than you are, or that I know what is "best" for you. When we work together, I will follow your lead, provide suggestions where I see fit, and trust that you'll take what you need and leave the rest.
A bit about my background: I am a white, cis, hetero female. I identify as liberal and agnostic. I currently live in rural Indiana. Some of my life experiences include being a child of divorce, romantic relationship abuse & infidelity, marriage & divorce at a young age, achieving sobriety without 12-step meetings or rehab, and major life transitions (moving across the country a few times, graduate school, starting a second career). I specialize in issues related to burnout & compassion fatigue for professional helpers.
