About My Clients

My work focuses on helping people overcome past and present hardships as well as creating the future they want. My ideal client is someone ready to make changes! Maybe you are a parent struggling to understand your child. Or you've just got out of a rough relationship. Dealing with changes or transitions can be difficult especially when you struggle with anxiety. I'm passionate about helping those I work with to find their inner strength again!

My Background and Approach

I earned my Masters degree through OSU and am excited to be practicing in my Alma maters backyard. I have experience working in school settings, hospital settings, and in the community. Most recently I worked primarily with young adults and really found that enjoyable. I feel comfortable treating adolescents, young adults, and adults who have experienced a range of struggles in life (typically ages 12 +). I am trained in a variety of evidenced based practices (meaning there is research behind the use of these treatments that prove it successful and effective), including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is specifically used to treat trauma (PTSD), anxiety and panic attacks, grief and depression. I pride myself on being a Queer affirming therapist.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a Queer individual I understand what it is like to be uncertain and confused. Please feel free to share anything that would make you feel more comfortable in my office space/ in sessions. I value being compassionate and client-centered. I believe everyone has the innate strength to overcome traumatic experiences in their life. I am passionate about being strengths based and that feeling like you "click" with your therapist is the first step to making meaning change.
