As long as I can remember I have always wanted to be in a career field where I can help others. It wasn’t until I went into my sophomore year at Indiana University (go Hoosiers!) that I knew psychology was the route for me, therefore lead me to studying clinical mental health counseling in graduate school at Marian University. I was/still am the friend that everyone comes to when they need to be heard or given support. So, when I decided to be a mental health therapist it wasn’t much of a surprise to everyone!
I have been working with kids since I was old enough to babysit at the age of 13, I always knew I wanted to continue to work with kids of any age because I love how their minds work, the energy they bring, and how unique each child is. I think it is important to see each child as a unique individual so I can use the approach in therapy that is best fit for them. I love being creative with children and letting them be their true selves and gain their trust, so they feel safe when they come to see me at Mini Minds.
When I am not at school or working with my beloved clients at Mini Minds, you can find me at the gym, spending time with family & friends, or binging a new Netflix show. Also, love spending time with my two dogs, Wilson & Hampton!
