I love to help individuals from all walks of life. I have a vast range of experience and feel as though I can help someone overcome obstacles, process life situations, acknowledge and heal from trauma, all while using an individual's strengths. I enjoy helping people to explore their strengths, understand where their strengths may stem from, and how they can be useful in their daily lives. I believe that there are no dead-ends, meaning when something does not work for someone, we try again until we find what does work. I like to help people understand their purpose and learn to make choices that best fit their needs.

There are numerous benefits from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, unresolved childhood issues, and more. Therapy can help provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. Ultimately, therapy is a place to be heard, understood, and to feel safe. Your needs and goals are the priority of treatment. Through client-centered and trauma-focused treatment, therapy will be a place you will want to come back to.

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.

You may be looking for help to decrease drinking or not playing as many video games. Perhaps you and your partner have hit a rough patch and need some clarity and understanding. Maybe you realize you are carrying hurts from your past that keep showing up in your present relationships. Someone may be saying, "you should see a counselor." If any of this sounds familiar, I look forward to meeting you! I want you to feel less anxiety and more peace and to feel empowered by proactivity rather than punished by reactivity. Whether or not you're ready for counseling, I welcome your call or email.

I began my career providing counseling services in a treatment center and have continued to specialize in substance use issues. Substance abuse, dependence, and addiction are confusing to all that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, OR addiction. Most can find recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a reasonable time frame.

My ideal client is an adult, couple, or family that has experienced loss or trauma and wants to feel connected to themselves, those they love, and their community again. The individual/s may be experiencing extreme anxiety, irritability, or depression and have been trying to keep picking themselves up, but are tired and concerned about what their future holds. They often find themselves using a variety of means to numb such as eating, substance use, gambling, pornography, sex, video games, etc. They experience emptiness and feel that they really have no sense of who they are or what they want and often feel alone and disconnected.

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.

You worry entirely too much and feel that the world is much too big. You are scared by all the possibilities, frightened by the fear of making choices. You linger way too long in bed dreading each day, wondering why the world seems like such a scary place. You find certain smells, certain tastes and certain sounds draw you back to a world that you try to escape.

Relationships are central to our core being. Our pain, agony, and joy is embedded in our relationships. Whether it is the lack of support from our parents or our partners, unresolved trauma or PTSD, persistent anxiety or depression, or the desire to live more authentically with those closest to us, embarking on a path toward healing is a courageous first step. As you begin on this path, you will learn to communicate more authentically, feel more centered, and develop multiple ways of dealing with life’s challenges.

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.

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.
