Clinical Interests

I have worked with children and teens ranging from 7-18 years of age for several years. I also have previous experience working with vulnerable adults. I have experience supporting clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, ASD, FASD, etc. I aim to create a safe and comfortable environment when working with an individual. I aim to help provide tools and skills to work through difficulties a person may face. These skills could include coping skills, assertive communication, hygiene, boundaries, dealing with conflict, staying on task, and more. I help clients by being an active listener, being accountable, being reliable, and having a good sense of humor.


I enjoy volleyball, hiking, board games, being with friends and family, and playing with my dog.
