About My Clients

Sometimes you might wake up and feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Maybe work is stressing you out; there is friend drama in the group text; perhaps your partner is getting on your nerves, or heck your whole family is driving you nuts! Whatever it is, you are not alone. Talking it out, having someone really hear you; receiving validation that you are in fact NOT can help. Knowing you don't have to carry that weight all by yourself can be lifesaving.

My Background and Approach

I have experience working with young children and parents to navigate behavioral concerns that are common in the younger years, while also supporting parents through the wonderful, yet difficult, task of raising their children. I've helped children learn to focus more effectively at home and in school. Couples and families have received help navigating difficult emotions and communication problems to help heal broken processes. I have worked closely with teenagers and young adults to overcome anxiety and depression, improve their fundamental decision-making skills, and overcome the inevitable heartbreaks that come with being a teenager.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a cis-gendered, straight, white woman. Yep, I'm as basic as it gets...except I hate all things pumpkin spice. I value my ability to create meaningful relationships with clients of all backgrounds. I encourage immediate feedback in sessions so I can make amends, shift my methods/focus, and overall be a better person and therapist. I'm a wife, a parent (to two), and a die-hard Packer fan. I'm a born and bred Midwest girl, who desperately misses fall and winter, until I actually experience the cold, then I miss the warmth. Sometimes I'm a walking contradiction. Sometimes I need to be reminded to have a filter. I tend to diffuse difficult or uncomfortable situations with humor...even in sessions.
