What choices can we make of the things within our control?

Our experiences and environment play a key role in who we are, and are often the sources of our problems and disability. Gender, class, race, and trauma are just some of the things I believe impact our physical/mental wellbeing. I take an Adlerian approach to counseling, applying a trauma-informed and social model of disability lens to my practice in order to define and tackle problems.

I believe therapy is a collaborative effort and that clients are responsible for their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They have the ability to choose how to resolve their own problems with my assistance as a facilitator. Of course, some things are out of our hands, but what choices can we make of the things within our control? I create a space to develop insight and awareness in order to grow and heal. I incorporate mindfulness practice and breathwork into my practice. 

Outside the office, I enjoy playing with cats, knitting/crocheting, watching baseball (go Pirates!), and practicing tarot.

What I do:

I enjoy working with adolescents and adults, and have a particular interest in working with LGBTQ and Asian populations and people with other marginalized identities because of my own experiences with these groups and my interests in their liberation as a whole. I try to take an abolitionist approach to counseling, so crisis prevention and using community support are priorities in my practice.

Education & Training

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at West Virginia University and my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Sam Houston State University. I have interned at West Oaks Hospital’s inpatient and outpatient facilities, where I gained experience conducting individual and group therapy for adolescents and adults dealing with issues ranging from substance abuse to depression and anxiety.
