I'm a proud momma and military spouse and understand the unique challenges parenting and/or military life can bring.
You haven’t felt like yourself lately; fatigued, moody, anxious, stressed. You used to feel like you were thriving in life, then depression or anxiety crept in. You look back and wonder what changed and are unsure how to get back to feeling like your best self, or just YOU again. Or maybe it's your "once-so-sweet" child who is acting out or fearful and stressed all the time. Problems in school, lack of focus, and behavioral changes can all be part of stress, depression, or anxiety - not your parenting! Through supportive counseling we can help you or your child RE-flourish in life.

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.

I have worked with all ages and relationship combinations and with persons experiencing life difficulties including the military and those attempting to make life changes (switching careers, entering new relationships, dealing with GLBT issues, first time parents, survivors of violence).
Psychotherapy can be a scary experience. It is important that the therapist be able to make the person seeking therapy feel as comfortable and as much at ease as possible. I believe that a therapist who displays a genuine self is most effective in working with others...no psychological babble, no hiding behind fancy office furniture and suit and ties and yes, using practical, everyday language with practical, every day problem solution. I am this kind of therapist...practical, down-to-earth, effective and affordable.

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.

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.
