Portrait Health Centers are multi-specialty clinics that employ the most cutting-edge and proven assessment protocols and treatment options available, believing that an Effective Treatment Depends On An Accurate Diagnosis. Individuals should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.
I believe therapy is most effective upon creating a relationship that involves respect, trust, and a sense of safety in a non-judgmental and growth-stimulating environment. As a therapist, I strive to meet clients where they are at and to help solidify areas in which clients want to improve; I view working towards personal goals as an agreement between the client and myself. I see value in recognizing and building upon individual strengths and resources to promote resiliency and healing. I utilize empathic and strength-based approaches with an interest in person-centered, cognitive behavioral, narrative, and existential therapies. Essentially, I aim to create a welcoming, validating, and fully accepting therapeutic space to assist in exploration of emotions, thoughts, conflicts, and experiences. Further, I believe it is important to view everyone through an intersectional lens to identify the various social identities and roles in our lives and how they interact and impact each other. I strongly believe it is important to explore these dynamics as a way to gain understanding of oneself and to explore how the client and therapist can work as a team towards healing the whole as opposed to one specific part.

I received my Master’s of Science in Art Therapy with a concentration in Counseling from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Through graduate studies, I was fortunate enough to work with women experiencing substance abuse issues, individuals experiencing homelessness, and clients seeking treatment through private practice. In my clinical career, I work full time at a community agency with clients from all backgrounds and walks of life and have gained skills in practicing from a trauma-informed perspective. I am open to working with a variety of clients (ages three and up) and have special interest in working with women, children, and the LGBTQ+ population. I work in individual, family, and couple’s therapy sessions. I have been trained to use art therapy and traditional talk therapy interventions and aim to increase my skills in mindfulness practices and other expressive therapies (including play, sand tray, and movement).
