Beginning therapy can often be difficult and may carry a host of fears, uncertainties, and challenges. I believe that it can also be a life changing journey that can help explore those difficult pieces and peel those layers that have kept us from being our authentic selves. My goal as a therapist is to provide a space for my clients, one that is safe and allows for real change and healing to take place.

As a licensed psychotherapist, I work with adults. My specific area of expertise includes working with survivors of sexual trauma. Along with survivors of trauma, I have gained experience working with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, addictions, depression, domestic violence, relationship issues, and many more areas that cause conflict in a person’s life. I am trained to use EMDR (a technique designed for trauma as well as anxiety and other emotional distresses) and enjoy using it with clients to help progress the healing process from psychological trauma and distress. As a therapist, I use a more humanistic approach along with cognitive-behavioral techniques, and work to explore a person’s past and how those experiences help shape present day feelings and behaviors.

I truly believe that creating change starts with a commitment to exploration and gaining insight. With my clients, I work with them to devise a treatment plan and work towards achieving their goals. I also believe that every successful experience begins with a good connection and therapeutic relationship. I commit myself to being authentic and sincere in every step of the way in order to help support and guide my clients in a way that is beneficial to them.

I obtained my bachelor degree from St. Cloud State University in Anthropology, a Master of Human Relations from University of Oklahoma, and a Post-Masters Certification in Community Counseling from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am also trained in Level I and II in EMDR and am in the process of becoming an advanced certified EMDR practitioner.
