I hold a license as a mental health counselor in the state of Washington (LMHC LH61194657). I earned a Master of Science in Education in Counseling and Mental Health Services from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania in 2018, and I earned a Master of Philosophy of Education in Professional Counseling from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania in 2019. My counseling experience has been in community mental health agencies and school settings, and I have helped individuals and families with a wide variety of challenges. My clinical interests and specialties include sexual trauma, interpersonal and community violence, family of origin issues, and most generally the impact of emotionally invalidating environments. These circumstances often lead to symptoms including depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, low self-worth, shame-proneness, and generally a difficulty with trusting one’s inner sense of self.

In my non-professional life, I enjoy drawing, watching reality TV, baking cupcakes, exploring the outdoors with friends and family, and hanging out with my dog Ziggy.
