My Ideal Client

Those who are navigating religious trauma, the impact of purity culture, and grief related to faith deconstruction and faith transitions are especially drawn to my work. I am also passionate about working with individuals who have experienced parentification, are recovering perfectionists, or folks who are neurodivergent and navigating spaces and systems that aren't designed for them.

My Approach to Helping

I use an integrative approach where I attune to my client’s goals, needs, and the greater systems that may be impacting them. My approach is relational, trauma-informed, and holistic. To put it simply, I take into account the whole person as well as the relationships, systems of oppression, and barriers that might influence how they show up in the world. So in sessions with clients, we are not simply looking at symptoms, but striving to understand and excavate the deeper places to get the full picture of what’s happening, where it started, and what a path forward could look like. Additionally, I offer EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I completed my Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Regis University in Denver.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The therapeutic relationship is a microcosm where an individual will get to experience someone honoring their full humanity. It also be a supportive space to identify and heal relational wounds. And, to enhance ones ability to connect with others simply by having the allocated space of therapy to practice and, ideally, a sense of safety within the context of relationships. My goal as a therapist is to highlight client strengths and equip and empower them to move about the world with more ease and a sense of belonging. At its best, therapy is a space where your full identity and humanity is held, honored, and cultivated.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • EMDR External link

    I practice EMDR therapy and integrate it into sessions with clients who are seeking relief from distressing or traumatic experiences, and desiring to replace old core beliefs that are no longer serving them.

  • Relational  External link

    I offer a relational approach which means showing up fully as both a clinician and as a human so that my clients can learn to do the same in the therapy room and outside in all their relationships and connections.

  • Psychodynamic  External link

    I integrate a psychodynamic approach—helping my clients explore how unconscious thoughts and past experiences may be impacting them in the present. Together, we'll explore patterns in thoughts and behaviors, often focusing on early life experiences and relationships to understand and address present concerns or stressors.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Spirituality External link

    I have lived experience related to healing from religious trauma and the impact of purity culture, the grief of faith deconstruction, and the relational dynamics that go along with a significant faith transition. Additionally, I have sought out additional training to support my work with folks who are interested in navigating religious trauma, faith deconstruction, or simply wanting more depth in their spiritual life.

  • ADHD External link

    I have worked with ADHDers and AuDHers and I am passionate about working with folks who are seeking a neurodiversity-affirming therapist. My goal is to empower my clients to attune to their strengths and to gain tools for areas that feel more challenging—that work with their own way of thinking and being.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Grief is a complex emotional journey—a confrontation of loss in all of it's forms. Although we may tend to associate grief with a death loss, grief is an expansive term for a diverse range of losses—whether it's a transition to a new city, a loss of a friendship, a faith transition, ora late diagnosis of autism or ADHD in adulthood. Every loss deserves to be acknowledged and held with care and support.
