Every human being is worthy of love, emotional safety, connection, grace and the opportunity to process pain & heal. I place emphasis on the importance of the therapeutic alignment, human to human attunement, psychological safety, autonomy, vulnerability and the power of presence.
Whether you have endured incredible trauma, experienced loss, gotten stuck in the grips of depression, felt flooded with hard emotion or anxieties, struggled with attachment, or felt helpless and overwhelmed; I am committed to providing you with an emotionally and psychologically safe space to process your emotions, pace through your trauma, explore your identity, make a hard life decision, identify new ways to cope, challenge your negative self-talk, dismantle your shame and unlock your most authentic self!
I am honored to take a step into your world, sit with you in your pain, or support your healing process. Although the journey of self can be painful and challenging at times; the moments of repairment, healing, and self-discovery make the discomfort worth it every time! I am humbled & grateful to connect with you on your journey.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. -Eleanor Roosevelt

I have always felt shame around my level of emotional sensitivity. After running from my vulnerable nature for years, I decided to try something new; I chose to lean into my inner world. This shift created space that allowed me to reframe my sensitivity from weakness to strength (with a little fine tuning) In addition to practicing psychotherapy, my sensitivity and vulnerability allows me to experience the richness and divine meaning of each moment; this includes experiences and feelings that are both positive and negative. In my personal life, I enjoy painting, writing poetry, snuggling with my fur-babies, listening to my husband rock out on stage, gardening, hiking, swimming, practicing spirituality, connecting with my friends and family, traveling the world, participating in activism, and sleeping in :)
Prior to earning my Master’s degree I have worked in the child welfare system, with the homeless population, in community mental health, in the juvenile court system, and in the school system. While obtaining my MSW, I worked as a graduate assistant at the West Virginia Employee Assistance program where I practiced individual and group psychotherapy. Additionally, I worked part time as an addictions counselor at a medically assisted treatment program. Since earning my Master’s degree and professional license, I have consistently practiced clinical psychotherapy in both private practice and community mental health settings. Soon after becoming a clinician, it became very clear that clinical
psychotherapy is my niche. Although I am savvy in modalities such as CBT and DBT; I am most interested in Emotionally Focused Couples therapy and EFT for individuals. This evidence based practice modality that was pioneered by Dr. Sue Johnson is rooted in Attachment Theory framework. EFT is an efficacious practice intervention that is commonly implemented in trauma work, marital work, family and individual.
