Mindfulness & Meditation
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Since I was young I had a passion for stories, the cliffs and the arcs and the hero's journey to a more authentic and fulfilled self. Becoming a therapist allows me to be a part of those transitional chapters where the hero faces the monsters and finds their path to becoming the warrior they are.
As a therapist I lean into the narrative lens, the overarching story, the broken attachments, and themes of interests or passions as we craft future goals. I am strength based and often pull from mindfulness practices such as meditation. I also enjoy utilizing writing prompts to encourage self-reflection, and to look at thoughts and negative self-talk to help shift to a more self-compassionate perspective.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Millikin University with a Bachleor's of Science in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy in 2009 and received my Master's of Education at Seattle University in Community Counseling.
I hold a specialization as a mental health therapist for the LGBTQ and non-binary population. I affirm and celebrate all sexualities and relationships and have experience working with poly and kinky individuals and couples.
