About Me:

I love pushing myself out of my comfort zone and working with different ages and clinical issues. During school I worked and interned doing in-home family therapy, at two substance abuse programs, a domestic violence shelter, and provided case management for clients experiencing severe mental illnesses.  Through my more recent experience as a therapist, I've loved using my personal and professional experiences, along with  training I have received, to guide my work. Using trauma-informed interventions and seeing clients grow immensely has been such an honor. It's amazing being apart of a client's journey and walking through life alongside them. 


When I'm not at Bloom Into Wellness:

I tend to remain pretty busy outside of Bloom Into Wellness! I also work at a methadone clinic in Boston, HCRC, and do a little work with the BEST Team when I can. If not working, you can probably find me yoga instructing in the Savin Hill area or walking dogs. I have two kitties of my own that came with me from Iowa, so all of my evenings are filled with cuddling. 


Hobbies/Interests:

Yoga, spending time with animals, reading, eating tacos, (from Taco Bell of course), and exploring Boston since I'm from Iowa! 


Fun Facts About Me: 

Taco Bell accepted my proposal when I professed my love, and also sent me a letter that I have framed.  

I used to do modeling in the Chicago area and was on The Steve Harvey Show multiple times!   

I was in a college drumline and miss drumming so much!
