About Me

Education

I am a licensed psychologist in Nebraska (#833). I earned by BA with distinction in Psychology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2004 and then went out to Eugene, Oregon for graduate school, earning my MS (2008) and PhD (2011) in Counseling Psychology from the University of Oregon. My training has focused on healing from trauma, anxiety, eating/body image concerns, multicultural issues in counseling, and identity development. I have experience working with all ages. My training also gave me invaluable tools that I continue to use in social justice efforts.  I completed my internship in Ames, IA at Iowa State University’s Student Counseling Services center where I focused on trauma, anxiety & depression, eating disorders, multicultural issues, and consultation/outreach.  Working with college students/faculty/staff is something I greatly enjoy. I consider myself a life-long-learner and actively pursue advanced training opportunities.

Personal

I was born and raised in Lincoln NE and am glad to have the opportunity to practice in my hometown. My experiences as a member of a first generation born in the United States, as well as being biethnic, are important parts of who I am. I love music, singing, and dancing, and enjoy yoga, running, and sewing. By far though, most of my free time is spent with my husband and our three young kids! I am a second generation psychologist and can’t imagine a profession I’d love more.
