I have been working in social services since the winter of 2006. I am fortunate in that I have gotten a great wealth of experience from my own story, the clients who have taught me from his/her/their stories, and the growth we have both found on the journey. I trained at the University of Kansas and received my Master of Social Welfare in 2015. In my clinical practice I have focused on work with people who have struggled with coming through trauma, substance abuse and substance dependency, the impact of incarceration and criminal justice entanglement, self-identification, gender identity, sexual orientation and self-identification, anxiety, depression, impacts of his/her/their own work as a helper, and many more. I self-identify as female, married, and a mother of three fantastic kids. My oldest is gender fluid and I respect his journey as I respect the journey of so many who travel this road. I am a trauma informed counselor looking to help you be your best self.
