As a therapist, I believe in creating a safe and supportive environment to promote growth and healing for each client. The components of this type of environment include collaboration, transparency, authenticity, a nonjudgmental stance, active listening, open-mindedness, and guiding the client through the challenges, barriers, and hardships to improve their quality of life. My therapeutic approach includes a variety of evidence-based practices such as psychoeducation, play therapy techniques, trauma-informed, strengths-based, and person-centered approach, and Solution-Focused (SFT), Dialectical (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

I have experience working with youth, adolescents, and adults in various settings such as an intensive outpatient program, summer camp, outpatient clinics, schools, and in-home settings. Specializing in LGBTQ+ care, my experiences as an intern at the UWGB Pride Center, Director of the LGBT+ Center in Marinette, and clinical therapist provided me the opportunity to help others explore their identity and gender diverse individuals through their transitioning process. My previous experience working with children at school and through an Autism in-home program helped me understand the importance of family involvement while maintaining client autonomy within treatment. I’ve developed the curriculum for and am currently facilitating the support group for parents who are raising gender diverse youth.

In my free time, I like to hike, spend time with family and friends, play with my dog, finding new events to attend and activities to participate in, and crossing things off my bucket list.
