Counseling Experience

I have over eighteen years of clinical experience working with adults, families, children, and youth in private practice, community mental health, residential care, and within student ministries at my church. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology and have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor since 2013. I have also provided Clinical Supervision to Master level interns and professional counselors for more than seven years.

Counseling Approach

I value compassion, empathy, and humor and enjoy partnering ​with my clients  ​to  ​help  them meet  ​their  ​needs  ​and  ​work  ​towards  ​the goals that are important to them. 

My specialties are in the areas of TRAUMA, DEPRESSION & ANXIETY, AND SEVERE MENTAL ILLNESSES. I am an EMDR trained therapist and find this is great way to help clients move past prior trauma and into the life they want to live. In addition to EMDR, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, ACT, Internal Family Systems, and Attachment theories, among other approaches, My most valued role in counseling  ​is  helping my clients know ​that  ​there  ​is  ​someone  and  some ​place  where  their stories  are  honored​, their  needs  ​are met, and change is possible.

I provide both in person and online, distance counseling for those who need this service.
