Brief info

As I complete my Master's in Social Work through Aurora University, I appreciate the opportunity to work with Your Story Counseling as a Clinical Intern and be involved in their program development for public service professionals and their families. My firsthand experiences have helped me develop a warm, nurturing, and authentic connection with clients as they take the brave step into therapy. I look forward to expanding my experience working with individuals of all ages, including couples, first responders, and their families who may struggle with anxiety, depression, relationships, or life transitions.

During therapy, I believe it is essential to utilize a tailored approach that addresses my clients' individualized experiences and emotional well-being. It is of the utmost importance to me to create a space for collaboration without judgment allowing one to openly explore their experiences and how those experiences may have shaped their lives.

My clinical experience working with anxiety and OCD in children and adolescents has prepared me to be adept at working with people through cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy methods. My goal is to meet clients where they are while working with them through difficulties and communication issues to help them move through the story of their lives.
