My journey to becoming a therapist began while studying social work at Grand Valley State University. At the time, I was learning the foundational elements of social justice that continues to inform my life as a person and professional. When working as a case manager for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities, I found that the best outcomes occurred in cases where the families and I were able to develop a healing bond.
The healing power of connection is what drives my work. It is through our therapeutic relationship that powerful change can be created. My style is psychodynamic and trauma-informed. Our work together will move towards the underlying past experiences that guide your behavior and bring about challenges in your daily life. My passion for working with people with eating disorders stems from a desire to work with people from marginalized identities who struggle in their relationship with food and body.
