I am currently a student at Adam's State University online program based out of Alamosa, CO. I am anticipated to graduate in Spring 2023 with a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have previously completed my Practicum at the Neurofeedback Center of Colorado Springs and have experience working with children, teens and adults.
As a therapist, I value creating a safe and collaborative space in our time spent working together. Life can become hard at times and we may need support to work through them. I am here to support, listen and help you achieve your goals. I am open to work with a variety of client concerns as I gain experience. I value a person-centered approach as the base of my counseling.
A little about myself, I enjoy hiking, camping, grooving to music and going on adventures. I spend a good amount of time with my family and friends. Another passion of mine is yoga, in my free time I like to practice and am also an instructor.
