“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” – Brené Brown
I am a compassionate and authentic human who is passionate about being with others through pain and finding ways to thrive in life. I am passionate about Internal Family Systems (IFS) and will help you learn about parts of yourself. From this place we listen to your parts and provide them with their needs to allow you to feel more inner knowing and strength.
I attended Chicago Theological Seminary and received a Masters in Divinity in 2014. I weave spirituality through my work with clients. I hold an open and welcoming stance to spirituality. No matter what your tradition or beliefs are I meet you where you are and offer guidance to explore what spirituality means to you. I attended Regis University and received a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2019. As well, I received a Post Graduate Certificate in Depth Psychotherapy. This combination of degrees allows me to tenderly sit with people who are experiencing intense emotions and have been through painful experiences. I attune to where you are and gently guide you into your internal world to gain awareness to your personal workings. From this place we can work towards shifting and healing past hurts.
I work from the perspective of Internal Family Systems (IFS) and hold a Level 1 training certificate as of June 2019. I hold awareness of my own internal world as I work with people to deepen into their internal world. This allows me to be present and grounded as we explore what is occurring in your internal world. Exploring your internal world and learning how to care for yourself can create a new way to being in relationships with others and coming to life’s challenges in new and skillful ways.
