I believe everyone is unique and deserves tailored care. I use techniques from different therapy models to make sure each patient gets the treatment that works for them. Kids and teens have a unique perspective on the world, and I enjoy spending time with them and learning from them.

Growing up in central Illinois in the middle of cornfields, I always knew I wanted to work with kids and families. After taking my first psychology class as a teenager, I knew I wanted to be a therapist.

I love spending time with my niece and nephew and enjoy movie date nights with my niece and going to our favorite restaurant for pizza. I have a cat named Stinky, and my favorite motto is, “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
