I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a B.A. in Biology from Augustana College and M.A. in Counseling from Bradley University. Having a passion for pregnancy and birth, I am a DONA-trained doula who is a Certified Prenatal and Perinatal Educator, Certified Lactation Specialist, and Certified Body Ready Method Pro. I have experience working with high-risk pregnancies, young mothers, and mothers who have suffered conception complications, birth tragedies, trauma, anxiety, and depression. In addition to specializing in the area of women's reproductive mental health, I've also worked with youth and young adults. I'm committed to helping support those populations as they navigate present day stressors, and make decisions that will have lifelong, positive impacts.
Although many situations, such as family or chaotic environments, are beyond our control, we have the choice, freedom, and power to heal our emotional hurts and pain. The unknown is scary and exploring unfamiliar territory to pursue healing is no different. My goal is to assist others in discovering their strengths and available tools to begin their journey of restoration. It is my privilege to walk alongside you during your journey, creating a safe place for you to search your soul for the answers.
