Clients I meet with are often frustrated, overwhelmed and just don't know what steps to take to get their life back. Client's that meet with me begin to recognize that treatment isn't always easy, but it's worth it!

Since beginning my time as a therapist, I have seen and continue to see those impacted by all sorts of traumatic events that have occurred in their lives. This causes difficulties such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem problems, and disruptions within relationships. I want to help those who are struggling with these issues make sense of their situation, the reasons for why they do what they do, and work toward better functioning within their lives and relationships.

Therapy provides a safe place to increase understanding, to learn how to make positive changes, to resolve problems, to heal from painful situations, or to simply feel better. I believe these things occur best when an individual is in a non-judgemental environment where they are treated with dignity and respect. I strive to provide just that to my clients. I want people to feel relaxed and supported when working with me. Life, with all its challenges, is difficult enough. The therapeutic process should be as easy as possible.

I hold space for clients as they acknowledge areas of discomfort, mentally and emotionally, and work to make sense, and find purpose and understanding there. I encourage clients to identify how beliefs, past and present experiences, and troubling memories are creating distress in their lives through symptoms of PTSD and trauma, body-image issues and eating disorders, hyper-arousal, distractibility in important functional roles, self-harming and dependent behaviors, anxiety, low or unstable mood, relational and sexual issues, and other unhealthy long-term coping skills. I am a member of IAEDP and am currently receiving supervision.

Life changes can be incredibly stressful. This can be due to: changes from one school to the next, moving out on your own for the first time, starting a new career, or entering or ending a relationship. Having someone who can help you work through and navigate these tough times can change the experience from “life is unbearable” too “I am stronger than I ever knew” or simply, “I can do this!” Counseling doesn’t mean that you are broken, just that you are going through a period in life that you need more support. This is where I come in…

I believe every one of my clients has the ability to improve, adapt, and express themselves more genuinely. They often come to therapy because they feel stuck. You may be depressed, anxious, in pain, or driven to the point of breaking but there's still a spark that can be the start of something better. I want to be with my clients every step of the way, in a relationship that can assist them in becoming who they are, recovering from what weighs on them, redeeming their past, and making a brighter future.

None of us come out of childhood without some cuts and bruises. Sometimes physical, but more oftentimes emotional. For many, these emotional wounds are still tender, open, lightly dressed with a bandage, forgotten, or even neglected. So when these emotions get touched we find ourselves reacting in ways that aren’t in line with the kind of person we want to be.

I believe in a confidential, non-judgmental, relationship-centered counseling environment where individuals, families, and couples can openly and safely discuss their thoughts and feelings. Each client is treated with respect and supported to gain greater self-understanding and self-awareness. The client is at the center of therapy and determines the direction of therapy. I present different perspectives and ideas and help the client identify and develop their own ways to resolve blocks to personal growth and to improve communication and the relationships in their lives.

“Just a small-town girl, living in a lonely world…” Hi there! I never thought I’d have a good excuse to use a Journey song as my introduction, but here we are! I am a small-town girl; I grew up in Willard, graduated from Willard, and have returned. While driving home for Christmas in 2015, I realized Willard needed a counseling center--and I have officially taken the leap! My hope is this can help Willard and the smaller surrounding towns not have to drive all the way to Springfield. "Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable..." - Mr. Fred Rogers

I have worked with a wide array of clients, especially in my past career in wilderness therapy. I have walked therapeutic, and literal, paths with people from all walks of life and with concerns ranging from depression and anxiety to personality disorders and trauma survivors. My ideal client is one that shows up physically, mentally, and emotionally for themselves. Therapy can be hard as facing ourselves can be a daunting task, I'm here to journey with you.
