About My Clients
I work with adult clients, ages, 18+. I enjoy working with LGBTQIA+ individuals regarding sexuality and gender identity. I have experience working with those who have experienced trauma and abuse in their lifetime. My training also includes working with individuals with depression, personality disorders, and anxiety. Other populations I enjoy working with are individuals in the kink community or non-monogamous relationships.

I am trained in many treatment modalities including dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, prolonged exposure, cognitive processing therapy, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Social Work from the University of Southern Indiana. My approach is comprised of support, validation, empowerment, and honesty. I strive to create a safe environment. I have been described as calm, consistent, and compassionate by my clients.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I strongly believe in creating a safe space for all individuals to receive therapy. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I personally understand the importance of acceptance and affirming therapy. I believe everyone deserves to receive professional therapy services to aid them in becoming the best version of themselves and find a life worth living.
