I have 10 years of clinical experience with outpatient and inpatient clients, crisis work, and advocacy as well as supervising pre-licensed therapists and social work interns. Prior to becoming a therapist/clinical social worker, I worked with people adjusting to life after a traumatic brain injury, coping with substance use, struggling with homelessness, and surviving during and after interpersonal violence.
Aligning with my professional history, I bring a lifetime of the same human emotions and situations many of us experience including loss and grief, love and heartbreak, fear and discontent, existential and spiritual questioning, etc.
Outside of the therapy room, I am often enjoying the company of my loved ones, including my furry companions. I enjoy hiking, camping, being on the river, my small collection of plants, reading, and going on long drives to explore the world. I am deeply grateful for the land I inhabit and the people who traveled the paths I walk. Fun fact - I went to school to become a therapist because of a tarot card reading. It was either this or become a librarian!
