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.
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!
