I enjoy getting to know everyone who joins with me and takes the big step of allowing me into their world. Therapy can sometimes be scary and uncertain but my goal is to create a space that feels safe for everyone of all identities. Just know that I will meet you where you are. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults, as well as family systems. I take a trauma-informed and holistic approach with clients as well as advocating for and empowering them to meet their goals.
I have experience working with a variety of populations and issues that can range from adjustment to life difficulties to complex trauma. I especially enjoy working with those wanting to process complex trauma, identity concerns, grief, anxiety, self-injurious behaviors, domestic violence survivors, and those within the child welfare system. At the end of the day, I want to get to know you as a whole person– not just your struggles.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychological sciences and my master’s degree in counseling from Ball State University. I tailor my interventions to fit client needs but I have experience utilizing DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), TF-CBT, parent training, ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), play therapy, and emotionally focused strategies. I provide both in-person and telehealth sessions.
In my free time, I love a good movie or show, playing Sims, and exploring new towns and cities with my family. I have 3 cats, 1 dog, and a rabbit that keeps me on my toes, and I enjoy being a foster parent.
