About Me

It can feel daunting to seek therapy and to share your vulnerabilities with a psychologist, so let's humanize me a bit. I love to be outdoors, and I visit the beach or mountains as often as possible with my kids and three dogs. I have a lifelong passion for yarn and love to knit. I enjoy getting lost inside a novel or traveling to new places, and like many others, I found a love for houseplants during the pandemic.

 

I am an honorably discharged Army veteran who earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington in 2013, followed by a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology specializing in Marriage and Family Counseling in 2016. In 2021, I received my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Michigan School of Psychology in Farmington Hills, Michigan. My dissertation was focused on Army Veterans and the Interpersonal Theory of Suicide, with a quantitative approach. I completed a pre-doctoral internship at the APA-accredited program at The University of Arkansas CAPS during the summer of 2021. This was followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at the Peterson Counseling Center at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida in 2022, where I served as a staff member until opening my private practice in 2023.


My Approach

I believe that my clients are capable of remarkable growth and I approach therapy with open-mindedness and curiosity. I integrate a Person-Centered and trauma-informed approach to help clients process traumatic experiences and develop resilience. I create a safe space where clients feel valued and supported on their journey towards becoming the person they want to be. I work collaboratively with clients to reflect, grow, and increase awareness, while also challenging patterns that prevent them from achieving their goals.

 

My Values

I work with clients who are uniquely affected by cultural and systemic factors. My approach to therapy prioritizes providing a safe and empowering space that acknowledges and respects the dynamics of intersectionality within each person. My goal is to create a nonjudgmental and supportive environment where you can be yourself and explore your journey of self-discovery, healing, and fulfillment.

Therapy can be a process, but once you develop a resilient mindset, it can last a lifetime and help you face future challenges. By investing in your emotional growth, you could also improve your relationships and overall health. If you're ready to take the first step towards positive change, contact me to schedule a brief consultation.
