I work to help families by creating a healthy, trusting relationship between parent and child. This happens through helping parents find appropriate boundaries and consistency. I enjoy working closely to understand the unique challenges each family faces. This helps me to find solutions that are individualized and realistic for that family. I love when a family reports feeling confident in their ability to get through stressful behaviors and enjoy harmonious family functioning.

I have worked in the mental health field since 2014 where I began working with at-risk children and adolescents in residential and shelter settings. Throughout that time, I developed my passion for working with adolescents that feel like they have been given up on and have no one on their side. I took that passion and earned by Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Nebraska- Lincoln in 2018, and am now a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner and Marriage and Family Therapist. During my graduate studies I gained experience working with youth, couples, families, and adults with major mental illness at UNL’s Family and Couple Clinic, as well as the Lincoln Regional Center. I have since spent my professional career working with youth that are part of the Juvenile Justice System in several community-based programs and in-home services.
