I graduated from Illinois State University with a B.S. in Psychology. Since then I have worked with many different populations of people from different cultures and backgrounds which has helped shape how I work with people. I have experience working with depressed clients, eating disorders, addiction, homelessness, anxiety, families, and Veterans. My path has lead me to earn an MSW from Dominican University in 2013. I moved to the Pacific Northwest to seek a new adventure and meet new people and learn about a whole new culture. I enjoy hiking, exercise, camping, sports, reading, and all types of music.
I focus on individual therapy and counseling for adults with various reasons for seeking help. I believe we all have the capacity to make a change for ourselves if we are able to keep hope and stay mindful of what truly matters to us. This change begins with developing an open, accepting and collaborative environment to feel comfortable in. Change begins with an idea, and my hope is to build off of that idea and structure a foundation for a life that is fulfilling and brings joy. We have so many pressures and commitments from society that it becomes easy to forget about what is truly important and who we really are. I believe in staying in the present moment, and working with clients to acknowledge maladaptive thinking patterns and behaviors and set goals to work on together. My philosophy includes working side by side as a team to achieve personal goals, and to support and empower the client throughout all of the highs and lows of the change process. My areas of passion include working with individuals with depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, and also with Veterans.
