I believe therapy is an individualized and holistic experience. I have specific training in working with disabled individuals and interest and experience working with neurodivergent folks, especially young adults with ADHD, learning disabilities, anxiety, and autism.
My background includes training in a variety of therapy modalities, and I value flexibility in the therapy process. In my work with clients, I am person-centered, focusing heavily on creating a collaborative, empathetic, nonjudgmental, and validating therapeutic relationship. Every person has unique needs and preferences and I’m here to honor that uniqueness. In my journey with clients, I am ready to work through values, self-compassion, learning, and disability identity. I pull strategies from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices as I support you. I have completed training related to trauma-informed care, supporting survivors, anti-racism, and the intersection of disability and LGBTQIA+ identities.
I’m especially experienced in the transition to and adjustment within postsecondary education. I’ve spent years working with individuals with ADHD on learning about their diagnosis and exploring related emotions and effective supports.
I received my Master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling from Michigan State University. I’m currently a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and Limited Licensed Professional Counselor.
Outside of Jubilee, I work full time at MSU’s Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities.
