About

"Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze us; they’re supposed to help us discover who we are." --BJR Yet, we know life can be challenging and navigating life after experiencing trauma can be especially difficult. As a result, we leave ourselves vulnerable to issues negatively impacting our lives in many ways: physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. It is important to feel connected and understood! As a former school counselor with 20 years' experience working with adolescents, young adults and adults, I am devoted to helping clients resolve old, unhealthy patterns of thinking and behaving.
I provide counseling services to adolescents and adults with varied issues: anxiety, adjustment in school and college, cultural bias, self-harm, military deployment/separation, divorce, grief, aging, anger management, and trauma. I am EMDR certified; an effective form of psychotherapy for treating trauma, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I recognize that seeking help can be scary. Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. I bring an inspirational, collaborative, strength-based approach to counseling that helps clients discover their personal strengths.
