I hold an LPC-IT in Wisconsin and specialize in the areas of anxiety, depression, LGBT identity and advocacy, eating disorders, self esteem, family concerns, relationship issues, death & grief, childhood& adult trauma, and wellness. I use a combination of various psychological practices. This includes psychodynamic, person centered/humanistic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), play-therapy, and motivational interviewing techniques aimed to assist clients gain insight into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I work with each person to identify and understand how thinking, core beliefs, emotions, and behavior can work to create both healthy and unhealthy functioning in daily living. I plan and individualize my therapeutic practices based on client symptoms and needs.
I love having the privilege of helping people heal, grow, and discover their purpose in life. It takes tremendous courage to share the intimate details of life with another person. I feel that my role is to be a compassionate and non-judgmental guide to help clients learn about themselves as an individual, their past, their goals, and their helpful and unhelpful personal habits and patterns with others. It is my honor to assist clients through therapy in order to become a better, healthier, and more fulfilled version of themselves. I typically find personal fulfillment through various media, including books, television, movies, and music, as well as spending quality time with close friends and family.
