When you choose to work with me you will get several things at once. You will get a compassionate, trauma informed individual that will be able to empathize with you, without judgment, no matter the situation. You will get a skilled clinician that has worked in many areas of mental health such as legally involved clients, domestic violence treatment, substance abuse concerns, relationships, and self improvement in both agency and private practice work. I use humor often in therapy to help you feel at ease and frankly, life is funny! I feel that the key to success in therapy is that the client is capable of making changes and improving their own life. I am there to just help to organize those thoughts and nudge you occasionally.
I graduated in 2013 with my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University. Since I have begun working in the mental health field I have found much more passion than in my previous roles in business. However, that combo of experience and education has led me to interesting places and I don’t regret one minute of it. I have also learned that as well as loving to work with clients to reach their full potential, I also love helping the next generation of therapists coming out of school. My position as Supervisor at RAFT will allow me to do both and I’m so excited to be able to explore this area in this environment. I tend to bring a combination of modalities into session depending on whatever the client’s needs are including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing(MI), Person Centered Therapy (PCT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Don’t worry, it doesn’t need to mean anything to you, just know I know when to use each tool.
I offer in office and telehealth services for adults and couples.
