Growing up I always found myself to be the person in my friends' lives that was there when they needed someone to talk to. This eventually led me down the path to explore Psychology at my undergraduate university. In my therapy, I most often pull from a Client Centered Rogerian approach. My professional background includes working with children, teens, and young adults who may be facing a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, low self-esteem, and difficulty adjusting to life changes. I enjoy using a healthy amount of humor and sarcasm especially in my work with adolescents. I feel constantly honored to be invited into the lives of my clients to witness their stories, support them in their individual growth and help them discover the connections and strengths within their own lives.
I have lived all over the continental United States and feel I have finally located my true home in the Pacific Northwest. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring and connecting with the amazing nature around me with my dog Daisy (I mean just look at her! Who wouldn't love spending time with that pooch?), playing and learning new board games, and crafting (yes I'm a knitting nerd).
