My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed clinical social worker, currently based out of Illinois. I received my MSW from the University of Northern Iowa in 2018, where I specialized in trauma processing and trauma-informed care. I am also an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trained therapist. Since I started working in the field, I have gained experience providing services to those who have not only identified troubles due to mental health but also struggled with addiction.

I like to use an eclectic approach when it comes to treatment modalities because I believe that there is no "one-size-fits-all" when it comes to therapy. Modalities I am comfortable using include Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, and working from a person- and client-centered approach. I truly believe that one is the expert of their own experience.
