Embracing the stories of others and meeting folks where they are is at the heart of everything I do. Counseling for me is a journey while in a therapeutic relationship with a trusted other. I value and honor each part that shows up and welcome whatever comes in the moment. Through a person centered with attachment-focused approach, I come alongside others to assist navigating whatever brings them into the counseling room. I love using expressive arts and other techniques to incorporate deeper meaning making, which is more than traditional talk therapy can provide. I graduated with my Masters in Counseling from Eastern Mennonite University in 2011, and I also have a trauma certification from the Ferentz Institute of Advanced Psychotherapy Training and Education. I have been living in Harrisonburg since 2009 and love all the close community connections and relations that come with living in the valley. I’m excited to be joining the Adagio House team after working in community mental health for the past 13 years. I enjoy walking, baking, traveling, and hanging out with friends, family, and my dogs in my spare time.
