I grew up in Minnesota and have lived in other areas of the Midwest before making it to Texas. I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a B.A. in Child Psychology. After graduation, I moved to a small town in Iowa. I worked in the health and wellness field before going back for my masters. While pursing my M.S. in Counseling, I worked in the school district as a Learning Supports Specialist (a social work related role)I assisted students and families faced with challenges that impeded academic success. I gained experience in trauma, addiction, social and academic issues. I obtained my Masters in Counseling with an emphasis in School (K-12) and Mental Health Counseling from Drake University. After nearly a decade in the Austin area, I have worked in dual diagnosis treatment centers, concentrating on mental health and addiction issues. I have been in private practice for the past five years, opening Solace Minds in 2021. Throughout my experience I have gained the necessary skills to treat individuals with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. I am trauma informed, and experienced in addiction, and conflict in relationship issues. My focus incorporates an integrative approach which emphasizes the relation between mental and physical wellness,
I utilize various modalities for treatment including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Person Centered Approach, and other therapeutic methods beneficial for the treatment of the individual client.
I am pursuing my certification in Integrative Medicine, and a Certified Clinical Service Provider for ADHD.
