I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Crime & Delinquent Studies, both from the University of Kansas. I have my Master of Social Work from Washburn University. I began my career in community mental health which offered me the opportunity to learn my craft across multiple settings. It was early in my career that I was introduced to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), allowing me to develop a solid understanding of this theoretical orientation. I have been extensively trained in DBT and am nationally certified as a DBT therapist.


I work with individuals (adults and adolescents ages 15+), couples and families to provide treatment for depression, anxiety, mood instability and other intrusive symptoms. As a therapist, I work to actively engage with my clients to develop effective coping skills designed to increase self-reliance and empowerment.

Life is hard and oftentimes we simply don’t have the tools to navigate the challenges we encounter. I believe that people can change, and I operate from a strength-based foundation, helping my clients understand what is working while instilling hope on their journey of recovery.
