My counseling approach is grounded in a humanistic and existentialist, strengths-based orientation. I am a strong believer in our inherent worth as human beings simply struggling to exist in a world that can be difficult and cruel. I believe my job is to partner with you in connecting more deeply with yourself so you can have more meaningful relationships and make values-driven choices in your life. I primarily integrate ACT, CBT, mindfulness, EMDR, narrative therapy and depth psychology with a person-centered focus. My collaborative style is informed by a feminist and social justice perspective that is mindful of trauma, attachment and intersecting identities. I invite you to show up as who you are into a space where you can experience unconditional acceptance without shame.
I enjoy working with adults and have a special interest in chronic illness, neurodivergence & ADHD, adult adoptees, and religious trauma as well as the LGBTQ+ community. I also have experience with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, codependency, phase of life transitions and caregiver stress.
I’m a native Arizonan and a recent graduate of NAU with a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
