Hello! I specialize in individual and couples counseling with adolescents and adults. My style is collaborative, integrative, warm, and client-centered. I combine evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy with expressive arts therapy, always keeping the focus on the needs and preferences of each individual. In working with me you’ll be welcomed into a safe, judgment-free space through which we’ll work together to help you increase your capacity for joy, strength, and resilience. You can expect lightness and laughter in our sessions in addition to “the work” involved in the therapeutic process.
My specialties include treating trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, disordered eating, behavioral issues in adolescence, general stress management, women’s issues, and issues unique to the LGBTQIA+ community. The lens I work through takes into account the sociocultural influences on emotional and physical well-being; I strive to be an actively anti-racist advocate for the BIPOC community and am LGBTQIA+ affirming. I am nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I am a queer-identifying, animal and movement-loving, born-and-bred Midwesterner who received my Bachelors in Psychology from Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Expressive Arts Therapy with a specialization in Dance/Movement Therapy from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I’m a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina (license number 15134), Licensed Professional Counselor in Michigan (license number 6401015690), and a credentialed Registered Dance/Movement Therapist through the American Dance Therapy Association (R-DMT-1856). My experience includes working in inpatient psychiatric units for children, adolescents, and adults, inpatient and residential eating disorder programs, adult dual diagnosis partial hospitalization programs, intensive in-home family therapy, and several outpatient community mental health clinics. I look forward to working with you!
