Being stuck in painful patterns can feel isolating, creating distress, eroding self-esteem, and impacting how we connect and function in friendships, romantic relationships, families, and professional environments. I believe therapeutic relationships can help restore hope and provide healing, even during seasons of great suffering. Having someone walk beside us helps to ease burdens and assist in restoring fulfillment. I aspire to provide a therapeutic relationship with my patients rooted in authenticity, validation, and trust. As the therapeutic relationship deepens, I find individuals develop insight into what initially brought them to see me.
I approach therapy through a Contemporary Psychoanalytic Lens to understand what is being communicated through one's behaviors and understand how past experiences influence current relationships. If you are suffering, feeling stuck, and struggling to move forward, you are not alone. Lean into this moment and reach out to connect with me.
I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies at MNU, earning a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degree (with honors) in Counseling. I completed a two-year fellowship of Psychoanalytic Thought through The Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute while working under Jessica Almond, Psychoanalyst and Licensed Professional Counselor.
I am dedicated to continuing my advanced post-graduate training through research and clinical work for professional and personal growth and refinement. I attend The William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Psychology for advanced training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
