It’s completely normal to feel mixed emotions about starting therapy, including apprehension and uncertainty. I like to remind my clients that feelings of anxiety often accompany all types of changes, even the most positive and meaningful ones. I believe that everyone deserves a safe, non-judgmental space to process, reflect and heal. My counseling philosophy is that you are the expert on your own experience and that my role as a psychotherapist is to provide the structure and tools to support you on your path towards creating a more fulfilling life. Regardless of where you start, I’m committed to meeting you where you are, wherever that might be.

As a holistic, strengths-based, and person-centered therapist, I collaborate with you to create an individualized treatment plan that supports your specific desired areas of change. The therapeutic process might look different for each client, but practices that are central to my approach include identifying your values, discovering what is most important in your life, and finding ways to help you prioritize and live in accordance with those values. In our sessions together, we will explore your unique challenges and patterns in relationships, practice authenticity, and foster deeper levels of self-compassion.

While the path to change can be challenging and non-linear, my hope is that we can make space for creativity, humor, and joy along the way. I deeply value client feedback and discussing which interventions work best for you, whether those include free-flowing discussions, psychoeducational handouts, worksheets, somatic experiencing, or art expression.

I integrate practices from various evidence-based theories, primarily Psychodynamic Theory, CBT, and ACT. My clinical interests include helping clients navigate major life changes, anxiety, depression, perinatal mental health, OCD, relationship challenges, self-esteem, trauma, and gender and sexuality concerns. I am currently working towards PMH-C certification to support my work in women’s reproductive mental health. I am a member of multiple professional organizations, including Postpartum Support International (PSI) and the American Counseling Association (ACA), and am recognized by NBCC as a National Certified Counselor (NCC).

I graduated from Northwestern University with a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and had previous experience in a private practice setting before joining Wildflower. Prior to working as a therapist, I coordinated a non-profit volunteer program geared towards supporting low-income seniors and received my bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology from Grinnell College.
