Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor

Supervised by: Erin Harrell, PsyD
Licensed Clinical Psychologist, CA #PSY27303

LCPC in Illinois

“I bring a unique vantage point of a strong preference to help clients utilize the innate creativity they possess to facilitate artistic, experiential interventions and coping skills, and I have special training to assist folks in this work. I work to confront my able-bodied, cisgender, whiteness by continually educating myself about the dynamics of implicit bias and about the way I present in the therapy space.  I'm excited about the way we begin to heal from our earliest attachments by enacting new patterns in relationships.”

Therapist Bio

I finished my MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in drama therapy from

the California Institute of Integral Studies. I also hold an MFA in Media and Performing

Arts (Acting Performance) from Savannah College of Art and Design.

Equity work has taken a “front and center” space in my development thus far as a

clinician. My graduate program created an environment for dialogue about how

clinicians must continually challenge themselves to ally with folks who are often

marginalized and oppressed in the world.

My training in theatre and drama therapy helps me be present and creative when

working with all my clients. I am passionate about applying drama therapy work for

community healing. I have conceptualized and implemented several drama therapy

workshops including mask and performance art for clients struggling with eating

disorders and therapy groups targeting intimacy and relationship skills for young adults

identifying as queer.

LGBTQIA++: I have worked extensively within queer community spaces and offer

gender affirming care and provide a safe space for all sexual identities.

Substance Use: I specialize in long term substance use recovery and have worked

with clients in both outpatient and residential settings.


Eating Disorders: I have substantial experience working with folks who are challenged

with eating disorders and disordered eating as I provided therapy groups and recovery

support in both residential treatment centers and outpatient settings.

Life Transitions: I specialize in life transition challenges and have aided folks in

building relationships, communication skills and mood management during big life
