You’re here because you want to know about me and what I can do for you…. Well, let’s get to it! I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, photographer, and want-to-be Wonder Woman.
I have been a therapist for ten years and what a fantastic experience it has been. I feel honored to play a small part in the lives of my clients.
Why I’m A Therapist
I became a believer in therapy at the age of fifteen when I battled depression and anxiety. I experienced the power the therapeutic relationship. The skills I gained were life-changing. I became a therapist to pay it forward.
I believe it’s possible for anyone to change the direction in their lives when they receive the right tools and support.
Who I Work With
I work with older teens and young adults (20’s & 30’s) who are suffering from depression or anxiety, or just having trouble adjusting to normal developmental changes. I teach my clients about self-compassion and what it is like to be kind to themselves.
For college students, I can help them adapt to the stressors of their newfound freedom and all the adult responsibilities that come with it.
I also support young adults in adjusting to new careers and responsibilities as well as issues like financial stress, changes in peer relationships, new relationships, adjusting to parenting and loneliness.
I strive to empower my clients to become the most awesome version of who they are meant to be.
My clients tell me that I’m genuine—they always know I am saying what I think. But I am also relatable, compassionate, and most of my clients find they can open up quickly. I can help you live the life you want by identifying and changing unhealthy thinking patterns and behaviors.
I’m a creative and active therapist with a slightly informal style. You’ll find that I am supportive and full of empathy, mixed with a dash of wit and a side of humor.
Though the therapy process can be difficult at times, I believe it should also be enjoyable and even fun.
Your comfort is my number one priority. Kick off your shoes, put your feet up, grab a cup of M&M’s and let the process begin!
I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Southern Illinois University (Edwardsville), and a master’s degree from McKendree University. I have ten years of clinical experience and advanced training in several therapeutic modalities.
