The greatest and most freeing gifts you can give yourself are self-exploration and compassion. Together, you and I can work collaboratively to further develop these tools, uncover new ones, and foster your innate resilience. My goal is for you to feel safe, challenged, and empowered during our time together. The sheer fact that you are seeking assistance, demonstrates both immense strength and courage. As a psychotherapist, I aim to create a non-judgmental, secure, and open-minded environment for clients to explore their feelings candidly and honestly.

I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques and I tailor treatment to the unique needs of the client. I often use an approach called Psychodynamic Therapy which focuses on gaining insight into past and present behaviors, as well as deepening overall self-awareness. Furthermore, I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy modalities.

My training and experience has primarily been with adolescents, teens, and adults, facing a wide array of challenges including sexual abuse, complicated grief, trauma, anxiety, family conflict, depression, loss, other life-stressors. I specialize in sexuality and am committed to the promotion of dignity for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. All identities are welcomed.

Born and raised in the Midwest, I received my undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Science from Oklahoma State University and will be receiving my Masters in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma in May of 2023.

I am proud of you and I look forward to hearing from you.
