University of Missouri

Professional Interests

My passion is for working with adolescents and young adults, as well as college students of all ages! I enjoy working on empowerment, increasing self-agency, and navigating obstacles from a strengths-based approach. Additionally, I like to engage in identity work and exploring client’s core values to support them in expressing themselves in an authentic way.

Theoretical Orientation

I work with clients using an approach rooted in Feminist Theory. I believe meaningful change occurs when clients are able to recognize themselves within the systems they operate and how they are impacted by those systems. My hope is that clients are able to see themselves as an active and meaningful agent in their own lives, as well as within their communities. I also practice skills building using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to help reduce experiences with psychological distress.

Personal Interests

I love being outside (especially in the mountains), watching movies, working on crossword puzzles, and listening to podcasts while cuddling with my fluffy little dog.
