About this pro

My approach is beneficial in your day-to-day existential crisis. My clients are creative, introspective individuals looking to answer the question "what am I doing with my life?". They know that vulnerability pays off and they are willing to try to "go there" with me. Therapy sucks because you're no longer avoiding your pain - you're sitting with it and saying "I see you, I hear you, I'm going to try to help you", and I want to support you through this process.

I am Licensed Professional Counselor Intern, supervised by Jennifer Buffalo, LPC-S, LMFT.  I have a master's in counseling psychology from the University of Kansas.  

I get to have real conversations with people about what matters to them and how they became who they are.  I have the best job in the world.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Clients will start with a FREE phone or in-person consultation where we talk a little about what's going on and see if I would be a good person to help.  If we both feel it's a good fit, we will discuss fees (I offer sliding scale payments) and our schedule to come.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I received a Bachelor of Arts  in psychology from Southwestern University and a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas.  I have received special training in Gottman Couple's Therapy, DBT, and Eating Disorder Assessment. I am currently licensed as an LPC-Intern, supervised by Jennifer Buffalo, LPC-S, LMFT.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I offer sliding scale services between $70- $100.

How did you get started in this business?

I love learning about everything, but psychology and neuroscience are the most interesting things to me.  I knew I wanted to be in a field where I form close connections with people, and counseling became the perfect fit.  

Each person has a unique lense with which they view the world; our experiences shape that.  We are all so very different, and yet we are bound by the same strong emotions and patterns of behavior.  I love the human connection that is formed through vulnerability and a willingness to understand.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked primarily with college students and young adults.
