I bring humor and hopefulness to the session, as well as compassion and honesty.

My Therapy Style

I am client-centered and very open with clients. I want to meet them where they are. I bring humor and hopefulness to the session, as well as compassion and honesty. I help clients identify their narratives as well as challenge them. I have experience with eating disorders and relationship issues so am very familiar with helping clients explore their relationships with food, their body, their family, and friends. I believe the clients know themselves the best, so I trust I will learn from them as they will also learn from me, and that will guide our work together.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I am a really great listener and have a lot of patience. I always have been the person that people would talk to and say "you have a very calm nature, and I feel like you really care." I am interested in people's minds, and the way that they think and react. I love learning about peoples' families, and what they learned growing up that they carry with them or choose to leave behind.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love to read, and I often have two books going at once- one that is fiction that I can get lost in, and another that is therapy or self-help related that I can learn from and bring into my work with clients. I love being outside. I have two children and take them to parks, the beach, on walks, and watching them get excited to see new places and experience new things for the first time.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I touch base with at least one of my close friends. I have a really strong support system. Many of my close friends live far away in my hometown state of Michigan, but the distance has barely affected us because of how intentional we are to make time for connection daily.

How do you recharge?

I identify as an extroverted person, so I recharge by being around other people and spending time with friends and family. I really enjoy getting meals with friends at new restaurants or taking a walk in a new place. I love to laugh, so it feels good to be with others who share my sense of humor. I also like to take a trip every once in a while, even if it's not too far away, like to the desert, or drive up the coast and get a change of scenery.
