I’ve worked in domestic violence shelters, hospitals, jails, courthouses, and private practices doing crisis intervention and counseling. I met my co-founder and best friend, Josh, working at a crisis hotline. It was there that I was introduced to the unexpected power of intentional empathy. It blew my mind and quickly became the most important tool that I have as a therapist and as a human. It not only transformed the way I work with clients but how I understand myself.
In 2020, Josh and I started our consulting company focused on the empathetic worldview that we call The Empathy Paradigm. In addition to that, I’m a licensed therapist specializing in religious trauma and a clinical supervisor for early career counselors.
