I specialize in working with teens and young adults who are struggling to establish meaningful relationships, are caught in the grips of low self-esteem, or have difficulties with overall life satisfaction. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and the LGBTQIA+ community and have experience treating anxiety, depression, grief/loss, chronic illness, academic/school issues, life adjustment/transitions, and dating/relationship issues.
Currently a Resident in Counseling, working towards my license as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I am supervised by Dan Towery, LPC. Using an integrative, holistic approach in my practice, I incorporate Existential Therapy, Mindfulness, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
Compassionate, warm, and genuine, I create a trusting and non-judgmental environment to foster free exploration of thoughts and emotions. Guiding clients on their journey to discover greater life satisfaction, well-being, and authentic living, I am also passionate about the importance of mental and physical health and reducing the stigma associated with mental illness. To practice what I preach, I even strive to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle myself!
