"I prefer to think of my patients and myself as fellow travelers, a term that abolishes distinctions between 'them' (the afflicted) and 'us' (the healers). ... We are all in this together, and there is no therapist and no person immune to the inherent tragedies of existence." - Irvin D. Yalom, “The Gift of Therapy”
If you’re reading this, you might be at a crossroads in your life, and you might be seeking some support. Wherever you are, I am excited to meet you and join you on your journey. You deserve a life that you’re excited about, and through our therapeutic work, I want to help you get to a place of healing, fulfillment, and congruence.
My approach is rooted in the “Person-Centered” and “Acceptance and Commitment (ACT)” frameworks. Within these frameworks, my role is to create a nonjudgmental space to process your experiences and to empower you to take control of your life. I am interested in identifying your core conflicts or stuck points, as well as your core values and identities.
My training and hands-on experiences have included work with anxiety, depression, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, stress management, cultural adjustment, grief and loss, family dynamics, romantic relationship concerns, substance use concerns, academic concerns, and career counseling. Sessions are generally client-driven, tailored to meet your needs and goals, and may include various eclectic techniques such as mindfulness, art expression, bibliotherapy, and psychoeducation.
I have received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology (with minors in Gender Studies and Counseling) from Texas A&M University – Commerce in 2014; I have received my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Arizona State University in May of 2020. My application is currently under review to become a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC) with the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners. I am under the direct supervision of Dr. Sophia Murphy, DBH, LPC, CPT.
