My Approach to Helping

I view the therapeutic relationship to be central to my work. I strive to create a safe space for my clients to work collaboratively toward their goals. I view each client as a unique individual and treats them as such, adapting a multi-faceted theoretical approach to therapy.

I offer telehealth services for adults of all ages. I offers therapy and especially skilled at:

Taming Trauma: Trauma is caused by past experiences and can severely impact your everyday life. I understand you need a safe space to explore the root cause. I offer a non-judgmental space to continue growing and learning about yourself.

Coping with Anxiety: Excessive worry and panic are just two of the many symptoms anxiety cause. Your body’s reaction to anxiety is completely different from the next person. I want to ensure you are getting the best help for you diagnosis by individualizing your treatment and listening to your needs.

Depression Therapy: Depression can feel as though it is your life, but it doesn’t have to be. Through talk therapy, I can help find coping mechanism and different therapeutic approaches to improve the quality of your life.

More Info About My Practice

I utilize approaches and techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Art and Play Therapy. I understand that therapy can feel uncomfortable and awkward at times and I encourage clients to move at a pace that feels comfortable.

I earned an bachelor’s degree with a major in Psychology from Illinois State University and obtained my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Valparaiso University. I am currently completing a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with loved ones and being active outdoors.
