I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

Partnering with others during their journey of healing through anxiety, trauma, substance use, and other issues is one of the fundamental beliefs I hold. Healing is a journey as a person navigates challenges from both within themselves and outside of themselves. Helping people integrate their faith into their healing is one of my specialties.

I am currently offering Teletherapy and limited in-person sessions. I enjoy working with all ages of clients and believe that anyone is capable of positive change. I view my clients as equal collaborators in the therapeutic process and therefore, take cue from their needs, strengths, and stated desired outcome during their time in therapy. Areas of focus include: trauma, PTSD, anxiety, personality disorders, gender and sexual identity, living with an intellectual or physical disability, social skills acquisition (particularly in cases of individuals with autism), addictions, pain management and strengthening family relationships.

I’ve had the privilege of working with many individuals and families over the course of 9 years in a variety of settings including office and school based outpatient, intensive in-home, school based day treatment, and a primary care pediatric office. During that time I saw that everyone is capable of change if they have the right supports and tools. I specifically enjoy supporting children and their families through difficult or challenging times and helping children and adults heal from trauma. Treatment is focused on the individual's and family goals that are set at the beginning of treatment.

I prefer email & text over voice call. I hope to provide a sense of safety, trust, and acceptance. I tend to work with clients who were once like myself, unsure why they never really "fit" into different settings throughout childhood and now adulthood. It can come as feeling a tiny bit different than those around you. Maybe you did well in school and had a couple close friends, but you don't understand why you feel overwhelmed by certain large environments, sounds, or even foods. You may know the word autism, but only think of it as Sheldon Cooper or Rain Man. It could be that you identify as queer and feel there is something else.

*** Now accepting BCBS and MedCost *** Life transitions often disrupt our sense of safety. It is normal to feel disconnected from ourselves and others during these periods. In them, we can lose touch with our ability to be happy, fulfilled, and well. Our sense of self and identity fades and we lose our capacity for intimacy. I can help you grow through these transformative times, identify what is most important for you in your life, reconnect and thrive.

Hope offers light despite the darkness. Deciding to participate in counseling is an important decision and it takes a lot of courage. I commend you for taking the first step. Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships. I’ve been a counselor since 1986 and love my job! It’s such an honor to walk with people as they grow and heal.

I enjoy working with clients who actively participate in their therapy. It is important to be ready to enter into therapy. The focus of therapy is on you not the others in your life - for after all you cannot change other people but rather the only person you can change is yourself. I can help you make the changes you want to make. Want to survive a trauma, stay sober, lose weight, interact better with others, recover from a loss, examine a troubled intimacy? This is what I do.

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no. And you just want some peace and the sense that you exist outside the needs of others.
