Finding a counselor can feel intimidating. Let me tell you a bit about myself so that you can get a better feel for who I am.

I started my career in business working as a consultant. After a few years in the role, I decided that the part of my job I enjoyed the most was connecting with others and supporting growth. I left my job and enrolled in a master's program to pursue a career in counseling.

Education & Qualifications:  

I completed my studies and professional training in the US. While pursuing my master's I worked under the supervision of several qualified therapists. After graduating, I completed postgraduate training and two years of supervised practice to expand upon my own skills as a therapist. I hold the following degrees & qualifications:

  • Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, University of Washington 

  • Master of Social Work (MSW), University of Denver

    • Concentrations in mental health counseling & family therapy

  • State of Colorado Licensed Clinical Social Worker 

    • Licensure Number: CSW.09928647

Professional Background: 

Prior to my move to Germany, I worked in numerous therapeutic settings in the US. My past work experience includes:

  • Eating Disorder Therapist: I worked as a therapist in residential and day treatment clinics for children, adolescents, and adults struggling with eating disorders. 

  • Individual Therapist: I worked and trained in an outpatient clinic providing regular therapy for adults and adolescents with anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other common mental health conditions.

  • Family Therapist: I supported families and parents of children and adolescents experiencing significant mental health or behavioral challenges.
