Hello!  While I wish the circumstances of our meeting were for different reasons, I am glad you have found your way to Brooke's Place.  It is a thriving yet gentle community that will walk with you and your family on your grieving and healing journeys. While having a small private practice for the last 6 years, in 2021 I started as a contract therapist with Brooke's Place.  My volunteer experience with this organization led me to become a therapist after being a facilitator with the 3-5 year olds and teens for 5 years.  I have always wished our world carved a better space for people when they lose someone dear.  I wish we gave adults and children time to honor this significant and life changing happening. Brooke's Place has always aimed to do just that and I plan to offer the same in our therapy sessions.  It is hard, hard work to grieve.  It will be a privilege to help navigate all the feelings in your family while also honoring the loved one who has died. 

I graduated from Christian Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2012. I have an undergraduate degree from DePauw University.  I am married and enjoy spending time with my kids and my dog.  I love to go on adventures, be in the woods, make things, practice yoga, listen to music and plant flowers.  I mostly love trying to keep up with what my kids are into!
