I will partner with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that can holistically honor your goals, values, needs, and recovery.
Life can be tough and there are times when we all face struggle. In those moments, we need the support of others as we courageously face those difficulties and begin to heal. I view my role as a counselor as an opportunity to meet you where you are, to learn from and honor your story, and to help you discover how to heal and grow in a way that is genuine and meaningful for you.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten. Are you looking for some positive changes in your life? It does not matter where you are, you are nowhere compared to where you can go. Therapy is an opportunity for individuals, couples and families to acquire skills to move along the continuum to a healthy and fulfilling life. During the therapeutic process individuals can learn more about themselves, change dysfunctional behavior patterns and increase emotional and social capital. Talking through struggles and issues and developing concrete tools for systemic change is my goal for a successful therapy experience.

I have an understanding of the military lifestyle as an Army brat, an Army veteran, and a military spouse of a current retiree.
Are you exhausted from anxious thoughts running through your head? Do others often tell you to calm down and relax? Do you feel like everyone thinks you have it all together yet inside you’re screaming? Are ‘slowing down’ and ‘letting go’ phrases that don’t exist in your vocabulary? I specialize in working with those who are struggling with anxiety, adjustment, and would like to heal from past family or relationship traumas. I also work with those experiencing intergenerational trauma.

That goal was challenging as an Active Duty Military Spouse , but I never lost sight during all the moves.
I began my career, as a Bachelor’s level provider, while my family was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. I worked for a military contract under UCLA’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior. On completion of my MSW, I rejoined the FOCUS team at Camp Lejeune, NC as a Resiliency Trainer for military families & couples . We relocated to Beaufort, SC, and I joined the Military & Family Life Counselor Program. I served in multiple roles as an MFLC, including a school-based assignment and an adult Army Recruiting Command assignment. Becoming a therapist has been my dream since a therapist changed my life as teenager.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
