Bio


Hi everyone! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with almost 8 years of experience in the mental health field. I earned both my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Eastern Mennonite University. I specialize in providing support for children, adolescents, and younger adults who may be experiencing challenges with depression, anxiety, trauma related stressors, ADHD, gender identity, self-esteem, relationship issues, stress management, communication deficits, and discrimination.


I like to provide my clients with a safe, non-judgmental space that gives them the opportunity to build a genuine and healthy client-counselor relationship to help clients grow in their clinical needs. I use an integrative and collaborative approach in sessions by using strength-based, evidenced-based, and person-centered therapies. My way of holding sessions is interactive, lively, and expressive.


In my spare time, I enjoy working out; spending time with my fiancé, family and friends; binge watching TV shows (if you have any good suggestions, let me know) with my 15- and 9-year-old pups; and I am both home-bodied but somehow I always end up involved in a weekend outing.
