My Approach to Helping

I see therapy as an effective tool for creating a respectful, rusting, safe relationship that supports growth. I meet clients where they are, working with them to improve the areas they choose. I see our work as a joint agreement and collaboration. I help my clients draw on their own resources so they can heal.

I use strength-based and empathetic approaches, with an emphasis on cognitive, narrative, behavioral, person-centered, and existential therapies. At its core, my work is about building a validating, welcoming, and wholly accepting therapeutic space where clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and challenges.

I view all clients through an intersectional lens that takes into account the effects of various social roles and identities. I explore these dynamics to help my clients understand themselves. In so doing, we find ways to work together to achieve holistic healing, rather than addressing a single part of the client.

More Info About My Practice

I graduated from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with a master?s of science in art therapy with a concentration in counseling. My graduate studies afforded me the chance to work with women facing issues with substance abuse, clients experiencing homelessness, and people seeking treatment in a private practice setting. I now work full time at a community agency, where I partner with clients from all walks of life and backgrounds. I have gained significant insights, and practice from a trauma-informed perspective.

I welcome all clients ages three and up, and am particularly interested in working with children, women, and the LGBTQ+ population. I offer family, individual, and couples therapy, and am trained to use art and talk therapy. I am currently increasing my skills at mindfulness and other expressive therapies, such as sand tray, movement, and play therapies.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

When I?m not working, I relish time with my family, friends, and partner, as well as traveling to new places. I love reading, video games, exercise, television, and art. I?m a practicing artist who showcases my work in shows as much as I am able.

I volunteer for a local LGBTQ+ organization, and welcome the chance to give back in a meaningful way. I have two cats?a mother-son pair. Because of the way my work as a therapist has changed my perspective, I read often about therapeutic theories, techniques, and research to grow in my profession and my personal life.
