|Credentials: I am a MA level clinical therapist who has been in the field for the past 6 years. I have experience working with a broad range of diagnoses and populations, with emphasis on ASD (autism spectrum disorder), LGBTQ+ community, and the BIPOC community. I earned a BA from Winthrop University and my MA degree from Saint Mary’s University of MN. I am currently working toward licensure in MN, NC, and IN. I currently use telehealth as the platform for therapy and appreciate how it has widened accessibility to therapy for many who were unable to access it.|

Growing up, therapy was stigmatized in my family and community. It wasn’t considered an appropriate means to deal with mental health. However, I found myself talking to a therapist at my high-school and found relief in my conversations with her. I do what I do because I want to help those who have not had the ability to talk to someone who does not judge them and does not impose society’s expectations on them, people who feel lost and don’t know where else to turn. I want to show my community and others who are struggling that therapy can be a sign of strength and not shame. I have learned how to hold space as vulnerable moments arise and how to help others develop those skills. I find fulfillment in helping individuals make progress and learn to develop their unique path to healing and personal growth.
