Hello! I serve as a Clinical Program Therapist at Selah House Outpatient in Cincinnati, OH, which provides expert eating disorder treatment and care to clients at the Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient levels of care. In this role, I provide individual, family, and group therapy to individuals suffering from eating disorders and co-occurring conditions, such as mood and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, and survivors of trauma. I’m passionate about challenging weight stigma, diet culture, and providing psychoeducation to parents and families on eating disorder recovery and mental health.
Working with eating disorders is a lifelong goal of mine and I feel very lucky to get to come to work each day. My “why” for working as a therapist and, specifically, with eating disorders, is simple: mental health concerns and eating disorders are very common- and often undiagnosed or untreated. I want to provide care, treatment, and empathy to each client I serve.
I attended Northern Kentucky University where I received both my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2013 and my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2016. I have five years of experience in treating eating disorders and body image issues across the outpatient, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization levels of care. My clinical interests include eating disorders, borderline personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and mood and anxiety disorders.
Outside of work, I’m passionate about animal welfare and volunteers at a local animal shelter. I have rescued two cats- both of which are missing legs (ask me about them!) and I’m a lifelong Northern Kentucky resident.
