About 

You are sick of being stuck.

You’ve felt overwhelmed, scared, and alone for long enough to know that you can’t continue feeling this way forever. You are ready to make a step towards change.

I care because I know what it is like to feel like an anxious mess. I spent years hiding behind being nice and doing things perfectly in order to keep people around and binging on food and sleep to get away from the overwhelming world. I know what it is to have all the feelings and be clueless about what to do with them. To want to connect and feel safe with others but absolutely suck at making it happen. 
 
I believe that people shouldn’t feel alone in their pain and can end their suffering with the right help.
I’ve dedicated my life to figuring out what it takes to live a full, authentic life-and I want others to have this, too.
There is a way to live the life that you want-and I love helping people figure out how to make this happen.

 I am a Licensed Psychologist, with a home base in Lincoln, NE. I work with local clients in person and, through the magic of Telehealth and licensure through Psypact, I am able to offer services to clients in other parts of Nebraska, as well as other states, including: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Washington D.C., Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia. New states are continually in the process of being added to Psypact: click here for an up-to-date map of states I provide services to!

But, are you even going to like me?

Some standout points about my style:

About

Listening

You’ve done therapy in the past and are looking for a therapist who will do more than “just listen” but also not talk about themselves the whole time-I’ve been there, I get it. It is important to me to balance being curious about your story with challenge, reflection, and ideas for how to create the change you are seeking. You also aren’t going to leave knowing more about me than yourself, let’s just say that.

About

Holistic

When working with me, you will be asked about your thoughts, feelings, and how you experience allllll of this within your body (where do you feel pressure, pain, angst, butterflies, tension, lightness). You will gain awareness of the interconnectedness of your mind and body, and why this matters in getting you to where you want to be.

About

Past / Present / Future

Throughout our work, you will understand how what you experienced earlier in life (and possibly in the lives of your parents and grandparents!) contributed to who you are and how you struggle and thrive today. You will probably spend some time exploring what has happened before, without remaining struck there. Ultimately, we want to help you live mindfully in the present, with an eye on where you want to be in the future and an appreciation for where you have been.

About

Safety

You can’t (and shouldn’t) do this kind of work with just anyone. You need to feel safe enough to be uncomfortable-because it takes a lot of courage (totally worth it, promise). If you tend to feel connected to people who are patient and warm, with dry, self deprecating humor-you are probably going to be able to let your guard down with me.

About

Advocacy + Inclusivity

I strive to continually educate myself about my own privileges and how my identities as a cisgender, straight, white, ablebodied female are alive in my work. I am committed to cultivating a culture of safety, where people from all marginalized populations and identities feel able to bring their full selves into the spaces I am in. To be clear: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer, Intersex, Ally (LGBTQIA) individuals are warmly welcomed here. People interested in and committed to their own Antiracist work are warmly welcomed here. When I make mistakes in my advocacy work, I welcome this feedback with appreciation and honor of the emotional labor required to bring this to my attention.
