We are not defined by the worst thing we’ve done or the hardest season we have lived through. Each of us has the capacity for change. It’s never too late to start over, start again, or try something new.
I enjoy working with people with a variety of motivations for starting therapy. While I specialize in working with postpartum moms and intended parents experiencing infertility, I have expertise in treating anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. I work with individuals and couples.
My job isn’t to tell someone what to do or how to think.
Sometimes, my job is to hold heavy emotions, thoughts, memories with you. Sometimes, it’s to sort out the big box of thoughts you’re carrying around and decide what to keep and what to move away from. I am passionate about normalizing the challenges of new parenthood, the deep pain of infertility, and the discomfort that can be a part of the journey we’re all on to live closer to our most well selves. We may share silence, questions, or laughter together. I encourage my clients to bring their whole selves into our work, and humor is usually a big part of that!
My approach to therapy is to employ evidenced-based interventions. I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Wellness Recovery Action Plans and Exposure Response Prevention. I integrate the tenets of many clinical treatment modalities to meet each patient’s unique needs. You’re the expert in your own story, I’ll pull out my toolbox and we work together to fine tune what will meet your specific needs!
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Trinity Christian College and completed my Master’s degree in Social Work from Jane Addams College of Social Work at University of Illinois-Chicago. Before becoming a full-time therapist, I worked at nonprofits across the city with experience in domestic violence, refugee resettlement, and housing. I am always pursuing training to become a more skilled clinician, I am currently in process of completing my Perinatal Mental Health Certification.
