Clinical Operations Manager and Psychotherapist

Therapy helped me get through a really difficult time in my life. I was able to learn tools and techniques to manage my anxiety both now and in future stressful situations.

As Clinical Operations Manager, staff psychotherapist, and clinical supervisor at Wildflower, I am tasked with ensuring that Wildflower clients obtain the highest quality of mental health services. I work closely with our clinical staff supportively and didactically to provide them with the tools needed to render effective, attuned, trauma-informed, and empathic care.

As a psychotherapist, I use a person-centered therapeutic approach when working with clients, and bring in concepts from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I believe that people are the experts of their own lives and that each person I meet has a valuable story to share that is unique and deeply personal. I approach therapy with genuineness, curiosity, openness, and a non-judgmental stance. I utilize a values-oriented approach and support my clients in identifying areas that are meaningful and important to them. My goal is to meet you where you are in the journey of life and assist and support you in exploring what matters to you most, deep in your heart and how together, we can make meaningful and lasting change.

In my role as a clinical supervisor at Wildflower, I am passionate about supporting and guiding therapists in gaining knowledge, skills, and confidence to support the clients they serve. My own experiences in supervision throughout my career have been some of the most meaningful parts of my work as a psychotherapist, and I am so honored to be able to provide a similar experience for other clinicians. My approach to supervision is to provide space to foster curiosity, learning, skill building, creativity, openness, and vulnerability. My aim is to support clinicians in finding their own clinical “voice” and utilize themselves and their knowledge to support clients in working toward their goals.

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Monmouth College, and my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adler University. My experience includes working with folks struggling with anxiety disorders, depression, perinatal mental health, couples therapy, trauma-related disorders, grief, self-esteem issues, and a variety of life stressors. I have extensive training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also specialize in working with perinatal mental health and have received extensive training through Postpartum Support International. I believe that human behavior is best looked at through a holistic lens and I am always looking to expand my growth, knowledge, and skills so I can best support and help those I meet. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.

  • Values are our guiding light and inform us of what we want our lives to look like and the kind of person we want to be.

More About Me

  • One of the ways I recharge is having a hot cup of chai and doing word searches snuggled up in some blankets with my dog, Chewy.
  • I’m obsessed with essential oils, particularly lavender scented and use them every night before bed to relax and unwind.
  • While in college, I was introduced to feminist theories and since then, have become more and more passionate around intersectionality and human rights, both professionally and personally.
