I am a LPC-Associate supervised by JC Shakespeare, LPC-S. I am also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor-Intern (LCDC-I) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). I was a firefighter for my community for six years and am passionate about addressing the stigma within the first responder community related to seeking mental health treatment. I work from an existential lens and utilize EMDR, DBT, expressive arts, and mindfulness with my clients as a means to find identity, meaning, and purpose. I am able to use my experience as a first responder to relate with my clients about the trauma, vicarious trauma, and stressors that are a part of the job. I guide my clients through the relational difficulties that emerge in life such as with a significant other or family member by providing foundational skills for communication and empathy. Healing the family system is one important part of establishing a solid support system while processing through trauma history. I walk with my clients through the many demands of life while encouraging deep, creative work.
