My Ideal Client

I work with teens and adults who find themselves in need of more support, whether that is with mental health symptoms, relationship concerns, changes in life, or self-acceptance. I'm no stranger to working with those experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, eating disorders, ADHD, bipolar, substance use/abuse, and/or difficulties related to autism-spectrum disorder.

My Approach to Helping

My approach is inclusive, client-centered, and based in cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy. In other words, I strive to create a safe space, where one feels able to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, as well as identify how they impact one's life. Life can be difficult, especially right now, and a helping hand can go a long way. I make it a priority to listen to the needs of clients, and involve them in the therapeutic process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I worked at an emergency shelter for homeless and runaway youth, where I helped teens and young adults stay safe, cope with trauma, and take steps toward independence as well as safety. One of my favorite things to do at the shelter was play board games with everyone. I think that human connection is extremely important, and games can help facilitate that. I began a weekly Dungeons and Dragons game as well. Prior to that job, I helped teens on the autism spectrum develop communication skills and I volunteered on the National Suicide Lifeline. I learned to meet people where they are at and take the time to listen to what a person needs. I am currently increasing my knowledge and understanding of working with LGBTQI+ clients, as well as how to write letters for those transitioning. One of my personal beliefs is that therapy should be available to everyone, no matter their life situation.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I worked with adolescents in different environments for most of my life. I taught children and teens karate when I was in high school, I was a mentor to Freshmen college students during my undergraduate years, I worked with teens on the autism spectrum and answered phones for the Youthline before graduate school, and I worked with teens at an emergency shelter during my graduate program. Currently, I will work with children/teens ages 12-18, as well as adults.

  • Suicidal Ideation External link

    I volunteered at a Lifeline, where I was trained in ASIST, a suicide intervention program. I worked with individuals, ranging from children to the elderly, experiencing crisis and/or suicide ideation. Additionally, I worked with teens and young adults at an emergency shelter, where it was common for individuals to experience suicide ideation.
