I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Clinical Supervisor at Wildflower. I am a client centered, trauma-informed therapist who believes in the importance of empathy, compassion, and a collaborative therapeutic relationship. I have been a therapist since 2011 and I specialize in working with adolescent and adult survivors of trauma, including sexual violence and abuse, military trauma, and medical trauma. I’m a certified Perinatal Mental Health clinician (PMH-C) that provides support to those who are facing challenges with fertility, pregnancy, post-partum and loss. Additionally, I have experience working with individuals facing grief and loss, immigration-related challenges, chronic illness, anxiety, depression and other life transitions.

As a therapist, I acknowledge that hurt is often experienced within relationships AND I believe that a collaborative therapeutic relationship is a place where healing can take place. In order to build that relationship, I strive to understand the unique experiences of each client and the challenges they face and provide unconditional positive regard and support. It is important for me to maintain flexibility in my therapeutic approach in order to meet the client where they are and formulate the therapeutic environment to fit their unique needs. In therapy, I honor each client’s natural ability to create positive change for themselves, no matter the circumstance, and I provide a safe and empowering environment where clients can identify their personal needs and establish boundaries in their lives.

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, with an emphasis in Human Services, at the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point and obtained a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Adler University in Chicago. I have utilized art, play, mindfulness techniques, and body awareness within therapy, but draw from other approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and others as needed.
