I began my educational journey at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana where I studied Sociology and received a minor in Education Studies. Although my path began with a desire to be a teacher, I knew this was not where I would be able to help students in the capacity in which I believed I'd be best. Thus, my focus shifted to counseling as I attended Western Michigan University and studied Community Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy in the Counselor Education/Counseling Psychology department.
Beyond graduation I have continued to increase my knowledge and skill set in the areas of trauma, relationships, and crisis management. In additional to these presentations, my scope of practice includes depression, anxiety, and self-esteem/self-improvement. Further, I have had specific training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Parent Management Training -- Oregon. It is my goal to continue increasing my knowledge base in the areas of trauma and relationships as these are areas about which I am passionate and, from my experience, are often found within the many different concerns for which clients come into my office.
