About Me

The idea of restoration is more than simply returning to an original state of being. It is my belief that restoring health in the mind, body, soul, and community is the process of taking what once was broken and transforming it into a life that is beautiful and robust. My goal as a counselor is to help my clients move beyond learned coping skills and towards true wellness. I believe strongly in treating each person with integrity, providing a safe and non-judgmental space for healing and wellness. I acknowledge the power that relationships and larger cultural context have on human psychology and experiences. It is my desire to help clients integrate that in the therapeutic process.

Education & Experience

I graduated with a masters degree in clinical mental health counseling from Cornerstone University. In addition to my specialties in treating trauma and anxiety, I have experience in helping clients with perinatal mental health concerns, parenting skills, life transitions, emotional and behavioral regulation, and relationship concerns among other things.
