Therapeutic Consultant, Clinical Psychologist
“The Privilege Of A Lifetime is Being Who You Are” - Joseph Cambell

Professional/Personal Mission

I seek to build authentic connections, allowing me to offer unwavering support, and help my clients feel understood, challenged, and deeply connected to themselves. I believe vulnerability is power, and I create a space where exploring that can lead to profound healing and resilience.  We all have the capacity to further understand ourselves and find meaning in our lives.


My academic path led me to a Master's in Child Development from the Erikson Institute in Chicago, followed by a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Prior professional roles include direct care staff in residential treatment, therapist, and Clinical Director of a residential treatment center and a wilderness therapy program.
Knowledge is just the compass, not the map. My therapeutic training and expertise is in working with complex clinical and psychological issues.  I have specialized training in developmental trauma, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Brainspotting, EMDR, and a deep understanding of family systems. I weave these threads together with insights from psychodynamic, developmental, and relational theories, all grounded in trauma-responsive approaches.
Ongoing Development/Interests
My professional interests and work include wilderness and experiential therapy, subjective experiences and phenomenological research, LGBTQIA+ affirming practices, and trauma responsive modalities. I am skilled in working with Borderline Personality Disorder (and traits), developmental trauma, and attachment/adoption dynamics.  

About Me

When I'm not in the office, you'll find me scaling mountains (often on my bike), with my pup Ruby, or cheering on the Cleveland Guardians, Cavs, and Michigan Wolverines (Go Blue!).  I’m an avid coffee drinker and frequently attend concerts and music festivals. I enjoy keeping up with current best practices and keeping up to date with psychology research.
