About My Clients

Your burdens may vary. You may be dealing with loss. You may be struggling to connect with people. You may be exhausted by the pressure that diet culture puts on us. Or you may be struggling with your identity and how you want to show up in the world. These are all issues that I have a strong passion for resolving, and I would love to help you with them.

My Background and Approach

I received my BA in Psychology from Schreiner University and my MA in Counseling from St. Edward's University. I am a passionate, quirky, and fun-loving therapist. I consider myself to be body positive, person-centered, and LGBTQIA+ affirming. I work from a non-judgmental, trauma-informed lens utilizing postmodern modalities that are attachment-based, narrative, and relational. Let’s work together to create a haven, where you can feel comfortable and supported.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Being vulnerable with someone new can be a very intimidating process, so I’m grateful that you have reached my page. Let me let you in on a secret…you can laugh in therapy. I know it sounds crazy right?! But I’m being completely candid. Some of my favorite moments in my career have been when we can find humor even while carrying our heavy burdens. There is no need to feel intimidated by me. You and I will work on the hard stuff while adding in levity along the way.
