About Me

As your therapist, my job is to provide you space to work through your experiences, offer new ways of looking at things and skills to cope with them, and, ultimately, to help you uncover what it means to move forward in a meaningful way. What works for you will probably look different than for other people, so everything we do together will always be tailored to you and where you are on your journey. I welcome clients who wish to incorporate their religious or spiritual backgrounds into therapy and am humbled by the privilege to walk alongside all of my clients on their journeys. I work with children (ages 3+), adolescents, adults, seniors, and veterans in individual therapy.

Education & Experience

As a professional who is Certified in Thanatology, I have extensive training and experience in death education, care of the dying, bereavement, and grief counseling in order to support those experiencing loss. I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with advanced training in Clinical Hypnosis. I have a Masters in Social Work as well as a Masters in Theology and Ministry. My experience includes working in a bereavement center for children ages 3+, supporting young adults in university settings, and counseling adults and seniors in hospice. I am currently pursuing a Certificate of Expressive Arts Therapy from the Institute for Creative Mindfulness. For those who would like to incorporate movement or yoga into their therapy, I am a Mindful Grieving Yoga Therapy Facilitator. I am certified by the Grief Support Network after completing their 200-hour training program. I have also completed 500 hours of additional yoga teacher training. I adapt yoga and movement to each client, making sure their unique physical and emotional needs are addressed and accommodated to in every session.
