My experience in mental health has taught me that being a therapist is the greatest honor. A therapist gets a window into someone’s heart and gets to accompany them in navigating life’s challenges. As a therapist intern, it is my goal to serve individuals from any background, and to gain as much perspective into the art of therapy as I can. My philosophy is rooted in the idea that everyone deserves a chance to heal and work through their struggles in a safe and inviting place. My goal is to provide a welcoming environment for you or your loved one to process trauma, improve coping skills, and work through challenges collaboratively.

 

I believe that the therapeutic alliance should be at the forefront of treatment. Working collaboratively with my clients is what I have found to be effective because I believe that you are the expert of your own life. To fulfill my role in the alliance, I apply therapeutic techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, and I am trained in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. 

 

I currently have my Bachelor's degree in social work from IUPUI. I am in graduate school at IUPUI to receive my Master’s in Social Work with a concentration in children, youth, and families and I am expected to graduate in May of 2022.

 

I have job experience in the following areas:

- Vocational Rehabilitation for adults with Autism

- Applied Behavior Analysis for children with Autism

- High school mental health services

- Career services and sex education program implementation in special education 

 

I am eager to work with all individuals, including those experiencing:

Trauma

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Anxiety

Depression

ADHD

Grief

Relationship Troubles

Personality Disorders 

I whole-heartedly look forward to working with you and your family!
