I believe therapy can be a deeply impactful experience, where individuals can gain a greater understanding of who they are (like why and how they think, feel, and act as they do), change life patterns that keep them stuck, develop more adaptive ways of being in the world, and become their most authentic selves. To accomplish this, I use an integrative and research-supported approach to treatment that is tailored to each client’s interpersonal style and presenting concerns.
I am a generalist practitioner, meaning I am trained and interested in working with individuals across a range of struggles, including those dealing with life transitions, anxiety, depression, past trauma, substance use, personality disorders, and bipolar disorder. I engage in therapy with individuals’ aged 13 to 100+ and conduct diagnostic assessments (e.g., ADHD, learning disabilities, psychiatric disorders, etc.) across the lifespan. I also work with couples to improve communication, trust, and intimacy.
I earned a Doctorate in Combined-Integrated Clinical and School Psychology from the APA-accredited program at James Madison University in Virginia. Prior to that, I obtained a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Fort Hays State University in Kansas. I have over 6 years of clinical experience and have worked with clients across a wide range of settings, including college counseling centers, outpatient community clinics, schools, and psychiatric hospitals.
