My practice at Reclaim is dedicated to women suffering the damaging impact of relational abuse, betrayal trauma, or sexual coercion. This trauma can occur as a result of a partners' addiction to pornography, substances, or other compulsive behaviors. Covert emotional abuse is a 'hidden epidemic' today that often goes unnoticed or disregarded by family, friends, church, and counselors. We also work with women who have PTSD due to family-of-origin/attachment issues or other traumatic life events. We offer safe connection and a pathway to healing.

I work primarily with women who desire to heal from past experiences or to address current struggles. Holding space for your pain and burdens in a person-centered centered approach, I tailor the use of interventions and techniques to your specific needs. You are unique - so is your journey - therefore your therapy experience should be too! As a Christian, I often integrate faith into therapy, however, I am a compassionate listener and respectful of whatever your personal worldview may be.

I will help you apply God's word and work through issues common to women such as emotional eating, comparison, stress, singleness, and many more.
The ideal client for me is someone looking for healing through God's truth. I've walked my own journey of learning how to cope with anxiety and depression and how to walk away from unhealthy relationships. I also learned that for me to try to fill the voids in my heart with people and things only left me empty. I would be honored to help you learn how to walk in freedom from what's burdening your heart.

I empower women through person-centered therapy.
Many of us experience challenges and need support while learning new strategies to address them. I know it can feel hopeless at times when nothing seems to work. You are not alone. My relational approach creates a safe place for women to evaluate decisions, contemplate outcomes and begin the change process. If you’ve ever had the frustrating experience of feeling stuck or fighting with yourself, maybe it’s time to work with the powerful tools of clinical EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) also known as tapping. It is a gentle way to approach trauma, phobia, food cravings and anxiety. Imagine finding and living an authentic life!

I work with adults going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

Choosing to live authentically is an act of courage. Life offers many opportunities to hide our true selves, sometimes even from oneself, often resulting in living far below our capacity. Taking steps to heal, recover, survive, or take life to the next level can be challenging on our own. We’ll work together to understand what you want in your life, what’s getting in the way, and how you can create opportunities to have more of what you want, empowering you to live courageously and authentically. I love working with many different concerns including anxiety, depression, sexuality, gender, parenting, and more.

What type of Columbia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
