About

Life can be difficult. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and to lose our sense of well-being and security. We look around each day and wonder why other people seem to have no trouble living life free from the sort of difficulties with which we struggle. We can begin to feel hopeless. But there is something inside each and every one of us, something beautiful and strong that cannot be touched by our trauma and recurring troubles, but can be obscured by them. Reconnecting with this part of ourselves in a safe, healing atmosphere can help us meet life’s challenges with a greater measure of peace with ourselves and the world.
I practice EMDR Therapy and am a Certified Brainspotting Therapist. I also utilize Cognitive Processing Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and have formal Zen Buddhism and meditation training. In addition, I have been involved in the local substance abuse community since 1998 and have a deep knowledge of the complications addiction can present.
Whatever you feel is affecting your daily life and keeping you from experiencing true emotional and mental freedom, Covered Bridge Counseling provides you with a safe, nonjudgemental, compassionate, and empathetic place to be heard, validated, and to begin to live the life you have always been meant to live.
