About Me:

I believe that therapy begins with hope. This means that change is possible and you are not stuck. I desire to both help you maintain hope and support the change process.

I believe that you are capable, resilient, and worthy. This means that I operate from a strengths-based and solution-focused perspective. While it is helpful to determine the true challenge, we often tend to fixate on problems that we lose sight of the strengths and possible solutions that can help us navigate trials life brings. This also means that I desire to understand and connect with you in a way that helps you see yourself as capable and worthy.

I believe in the benefit of having an organized life, which includes your mind. Have you ever felt like your thoughts and feelings are a hopelessly disorganized room that you don’t know where to begin cleaning and sorting? This can be daunting to navigate on your own, and I would be honored to join you by bringing clinical insights and evidence-based practices as we bring organization to your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. I want to join you by seeking to understand, drawing out and synthesizing thoughts, and creating clear next-steps. In short, I want to help you to gain clarity about your identity, beliefs, behaviors, and goals.

I believe in the power of connection. This means that I value both the therapeutic relationship and the importance of your relationships with others. I am eager to support you in restoring your relationship with others.

I predominantly work with those who are 14-24 years old, couples, and families. However, due to my range of experience, I am open to working with others outside of this range.


I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Hillsdale College and my Master's Degree in Clinical Social Work from George Fox University. I am a QMHP (Qualified Mental Health Professional) and CSWA (Clinical Social Work Associate).

The past few years I have worked as a community-based crisis mental health therapist with children and families. In this setting, I gained a wide variety of experience supporting families, couples, and children in home-based, inpatient, residential, and outpatient settings.

I work with individuals, couples, and families dealing with a variety of issues, including:

  • Grief
  • Trauma
  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Relationship problems (peer and family conflict)
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Adoption issues
  • Christian counseling


I blend motivational interviewing, collaborative problem-solving, art, narrative, developmental, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to meet the specific mental health needs of each individual, couple, or family I support. I have specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), neurobiology, adoption issues, substance abuse, trust-based relational intervention, and crisis intervention.


My hobbies include laughing with my husband at our baby and cat (who acts more like a dog), hiking and paddle boarding, singing and playing cello, and leading the youth group at my church.
