It’s tough to be a human in this world right now! No matter where you are in your journey, I can work with you and provide you the support you need to honor your emotions, to understand and value your various identities, and rewrite your story to center joy, rest, and compassion.
I am an Out, Proud, and Unapologetically queer woman (she/her) whose primary goal is to provide a collaborative, warm, and brave/r space for you to heal your authentic self in.
My foundation is built on trauma-informed and compassion-focused interventions, with an emphasis on systems impact on our wellbeing. I also weave in appropriate evidence-based practices (i.e. Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Acceptance Commitment, etc.) to tailor my approach to your individual needs. I strongly believe that societal norms and systemic oppression can exacerbate much of the pain you may be experiencing. Therefore, my approach is to identify the root of the pain and empower you to find healing and agency through self-compassion and self-advocacy in our journey together.
I graduated from Albion College in 2020 with a B.A. in Psychology and English and graduated from Michigan State University in 2023 with a Master’s in Social Work. My passion lies within working with those who identify within the LGBTQ+ community, those who are exploring their gender, sexuality/attractionality, and those from all cultural, racial, ethnic, dis/ability, and socioeconomic identities. Additionally, while at MSU, I worked with college students in the Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) office during and after the tragedy our community experienced on February 13th, 2023. Since then, my focus has also centered on providing trauma-informed care, and specializing in working with survivors of gun violence.
