I received my Bachelor of Arts in Gender, Women’s, & Sexuality Studies from Grinnell College, IA. I completed my non-terminating master’s degree in counseling psychology from University of Florida, and I am currently pursuing my doctorate there as well.
During my time in graduate school, I have worked in a college counseling center, outpatient unit, intensive outpatient program, inpatient hospital and community clinic. I have sought training across individual, group, consultation and assessment modalities. I have had the honor of working with clients across the lifespan (ages 5 – 95) and from diverse backgrounds in terms of ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, spirituality, disability, and neurodiversity. I find great joy helping clients of all ages and backgrounds better understand themselves and find ways to make change and heal.
As a doctoral intern at the counseling center, I provide individual and group psychotherapy, assessment and outreach to undergraduate and graduate students. I also provide supervision and consultation to peers in the mental health field.
My approach to the therapeutic relationship is co-constructive, meaning I try to offer my expertise while continuously collaborating with my clients. My approach to therapy is an integration of feminist therapy with evidence-based therapies (i.e., CBT, ACT, and DBT). I strive to balance creating spaces to narratively process struggles within a feminist framework and incorporating specific interventions within a short-term therapy model. My goal is to facilitate a space where clients feel simultaneously seen, supported, challenged and empowered.
I was born in Chicago, and am thrilled to enjoy the mountains, great weather, and wonderful people of Colorado. In my spare time, I love to cook with my partner, rock climb, and create art. More times than not, you can also catch me reading books, far too late, without being able to put them down.
