You're not in this alone.

The truth is we all could use some counseling. Whether it is for a specific concern, or a safe space to process ongoing events, I am honored to be part of the process with those I work with. I am committed to supporting individuals in removing barriers that keep them from living the fulfilling life they deserve. I work with folx to cultivate a safe space for processing and check in often to ensure we are on the same trajectory.

I believe clients and counselors must work together. Each person brings with them their own worldview which has been shaped by their experiences, so counseling is directed by the needs of the client. While I approach counseling through a trauma-informed lens, I am intentional in my foundational use of feminist and attachment theory. In addition, I bring many interventions into sessions, such as card decks, sand tray, creative counseling techniques and somatic work. I believe it is only possible for a client to feel fully witnessed if they find meaning and connection to the work they are doing.

I am an Independently Licensed Mental Health Practitioner with more than a decade of experience. I graduated from West Virginia University in 2009 with a master’s in Counseling, specializing in both clinical mental health and school counseling. Prior to entering my doctoral program, I gained experience in the areas of substance abuse treatment, health management, and early telehealth counseling serving rural communities in West Virginia. I received my doctoral degree in 2018 in Counselor Education and Supervision from the University of Northern Colorado, with a specialization in Child and Adolescent counseling with an emphasis in play therapy.

I have experience in the areas of grief counseling and working with individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, individuals that identify as part of a marginalized community, and school/family related concerns. I am an unwavering advocate for social justice, inclusivity, equity, and access to mental health care for all humans. Most recently, my clinical, professional, and personal experiences have called me from academia into private practice eager to work with children, adolescents, and individuals.
