I am currently a master’s student at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater studying to become a Licensed Professional Counselor with an emphasis in trauma treatment. I am fulfill my student internship at Abegglen Counseling.
It is my intention to journey with others through their suffering to cultivate hope and make meaning out of the trauma and difficulties they have experienced. I believe that through creating an environment of mutual respect and safety it is possible to promote healing and personal growth in counseling. I am driven to assist others in finding their strengths and work through what challenges them.
My counseling experience includes counseling children, families, and college students that experienced depression, anxiety, self-esteem and self-worth concerns, alcohol and drug abuse, relationship concerns, academic challenges, self-harm and suicidal ideation, autism spectrum disorders, and emotion regulation concerns. I also have many years of experience working with LGBTQ+ individuals, religion and spirituality, terminal illness or diagnosis of life changing disorders, persistent mental illness, and grief.
In the counseling setting I work with my clients to develop personalized goals to cultivate a stronger sense of self-confidence, healing and hope, and making meaning of your life.
