Background

Strength comes from realizing what you feel and feeling like you need someone to listen and be there. Strength does not form overnight but begins over persistence, vulnerability, and trust in yourself. Everyone feels weak at least once in their life, maybe more. The ideal vision is to find more robust spots in yourself to overcome the obstacles weighing you down when life gets a little more than we can handle. My goal is to support the team in helping every client find a strong spot hiding somewhere in them.

I am a senior at Washington State University, and I am hoping to pursue my graduate degree soon. I am majoring in BS Psychology with a minor in human development, sociology, and business administration. I volunteer at the Trevor Project and Crisis Textline to help individuals feel heard. As an intern here, I am determined to learn from the team and be any support possible for you to feel welcomed.

Being vulnerable can be one of the most challenging things to do as a human, but we all have it in us to do so. I believe help is everywhere, and we all want to do our best to give it. I have had ADHD for as long as seven years, and I struggled with getting the help I needed or finding someone who understood. But the truth is, everyone is there when you allow them to be. It is essential to feel comfortable when connecting with someone you are willing to be open with, which can be found here, where strength starts with vulnerability.
