In my practice, I work to open the space for individuals and groups who struggle with addictions,
compulsions and obsessions so that they may safely discover the root of their longings. We then
work together to create ways they can fulfill those needs that help them thrive, rather than self destruct.
Those who feel lost and out of control concerning their relationships with alcohol, drugs,
sex, food and anger/rage find self-acceptance and hope in our work.
I received my training at Christian Theological Seminary, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a
Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling and receiving the departmental award for Excellence
in Mental Health Counseling. My training focused on psychoanalytic approaches to working with
individuals, couples and groups. My predominant theoretical perspectives are intersubjective
psychoanalytic theory (considers relational aspects of the therapeutic encounter) and object
relations theory (considers the impact of early relationships on personality). I received my
Bachelor’s degrees from Ball State University in Psychology and French.
Special areas of expertise include alcohol and substance abuse, issues surrounding obsessive
thoughts and compulsive behaviors which feel out of control, eating disorders, Complex PTSD as
a result of early trauma, panic and anxiety and emotional regulation.
