I was born and raised in a small, rural town in Kentucky. I then headed to southern Indiana where I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Southern Indiana. After completing an undergraduate internship under the supervision of a pediatric psychologist, I knew I wanted to work in the mental health field with children in some capacity. I discovered the field of school psychology, which led me to where I am today. I am currently a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the school psychology program at Northern Illinois University. As an extern at LivingRite, I am excited to grow as a therapist and to work with a diverse set of clients!
Areas of Specialty
As a school psychologist in training, I specialize in working with children and adolescents. I have experience working in a school setting with students with anxiety, ADHD, behavior problems, autism, emotion regulation difficulties, specific learning disabilities, and more. I also have experience applying intensive exposure therapy for children with selective mutism. With my experience in the education setting, I recognize the importance of connecting outside mental health support with a child’s schooling in order to allow the child to best access their education. I hope to work collaboratively with clients and their families in reaching their treatment goals.
