Our interior emotional experiences can, at times, feel overwhelming. The process of navigating our emotions while carrying wounds from the past, relational pressures, and everyday stressors, can be taxing. I desire to accompany and assist individuals in their journey towards healing and greater self-acceptance. My training and diverse experience in inpatient, outpatient, and collegiate settings equips me to create an empathic, safe-environment for the cultivation of your own personal flourishing.
I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I work with parents, children, and adolescents from all walks of life. One's life journey can be beautiful, stressful, joyous, and heartbreaking. My desire is to walk alongside each individual on their unique journey, and my goal is to provide a healing space for each person who walks into my office. I aim to work together with clients to help them find the best possible solution to life's challenges, to facilitate change and transformation, and to foster healing. My natural niche stems from my experience working with children, adolescents, and parents.
We all bear wounds of some kind. Everyone has a unique life story to share. I became a therapist to listen to others’ stories of pain, and work with them to find light in their darkness. For 15 years, I have worked with individuals and families that have suffered from wounds inflicted by others, as well as emotional harm that may be self inflicted. Trauma and dysfunctional family patterns, or damaging thoughts- such as shame, anxiety, and self-defeat- may serve as examples of these wounds. The weight of unresolved emotional and mental pain can be both limiting and exhausting. But there is hope, and these wounds can be mended.
I became a therapist because of my own struggles with anxiety and depression. I know first hand what it is like to feel trapped and alone, and I want to help others to overcome these issues. I love getting to be a part of a person's healing journey.
I'm passionate about working with adult women and older teen girls that are going through transformative and transitional years of life that are ready to take the next steps to grow through their stories, heighten their self-discovery, and discover their most authentic selves. I believe that is possible by providing a foundation of stability, inclusivity, support, belonging, and safety in our therapeutic relationship. My clinical interests revolve around transitions, anxiety, trauma, relationships, self-esteem, women's issues, and grief/loss.

WOMEN AND TEENS: I get it. You just want to be liked; To feel like you belong. But, you struggle to build true connections with people. Daily worries and critical thoughts about yourself keep you from opening up to others. You feel like you can't be yourself, so instead you try to be the person you feel expected to be. You just want friends that you feel comfortable around and a job that doesn't leave you feeling completely drained and inadequate by the end of the day. You're sick of feeling paralyzed by the anxiety and depression that you carry inside. Nobody knows how much you are struggling and you're tired of feeling so alone.
My specialty areas are addiction, trauma, codependency, and mood disorders. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to develop tools and gain insight to create the life you deserve. I am honored to work with individuals, couples, and families seeking to improve the quality of their lives and relationships. Our past invisibly influences the present, shaping our current thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and behaviors. Psychotherapy is a partnership that helps to illuminate the next step on your path to a more peaceful, joyful life.

Are you feeling stuck? Do you feel powerless and defeated because life seems to be happening to you? Do you have trouble letting go of unhealthy parts of your life? Do you desire to live a more fulfilled, peaceful life but are having trouble getting there? Well, I can help. My specialty is helping clients feel more empowered and fulfilled in their life. I believe the counseling journey is a collaborative endeavor and healing happens in relationship to ourselves and with others. Together, we will face the challenges in your life and work to resolve them as we seek to uncover your true potential.
I provide a professional mental health service that is faith-based within a Christian perspective. Using traditional evidence-based counseling theories together with some common biblical wisdom can help to untangle the confusing and overwhelming feelings of anxiety or depression in difficult circumstances. You may think it is impossible to come through that hard place on your own. Talking with someone who understands can help validate your experience and the challenges that have you feeling stuck. Let's talk about those problematic issues and concerns together and start moving toward a healthier place.
I began working in the field over 20 years ago, in university counseling centers across the South. Now in private practice, I see adolescents-middle age adults. I strive to join my clients at the point in their process where old patterns are no longer working and collaborate with them to find new ones. I like to set goals together that provide a roadmap for the course of our work, and I challenge my clients to work on things not only in session, but also in their everyday lives. I view therapy as a temporary stop along life’s path; a realignment that sends my clients back out there as healthier and happier versions of themselves.
Being able to talk openly and honestly about feelings is the foundation of therapy. A therapist is a supportive person who can listen to you and give you honest feedback in an emotionally safe space. Therapy is about getting a better understanding of yourself, your behavior, feelings, motivations, and patterns. When you come to therapy, I want you to feel comfortable coming in just as you are.
I believe that one of the greatest power and influence in our lives are our relationships with others. It is from relationships that all of our trauma, negativity, and heartache originate; however, it is only through relationships that we can also find true healing for prior wounds that continue to determine present actions and emotions. The difference in these two kinds of relationships is honesty, vulnerability, and reciprocity: a mutual connection that cultivates intimacy and acceptance by removing shame and anxiety. It is only through these authentic relationships that we can truly feel complete and secure in our own skin.
I am passionate about working with individuals who struggle with eating disorders, chronic dieting, weight and body image concerns, anxiety, and trauma. In my practice, I work from a Health at Every Size approach. By creating a safe, inclusive and judgment free environment, I strive to provide a space that fosters connection and understanding.
Do you feel you’re on autopilot and simply going through the motions? Do you feel lost and unsure of what to do next? Do you feel like emotions and thoughts are running your life and you’re not sure how to regain control? You're not alone. Our emotions can feel overwhelming, ruminating thoughts can be tiresome, and impulsive behavior can feel out of our control. I aim to help you cultivate your curiosity to gain a deeper understanding of your emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and identities. I hope to help you clarify your goals and values and explore how to incorporate these into your daily life to reconnect with your true self.

Hello! I am a Trauma-Informed therapist who is also Equine Certified which means that I have the ability to incorporate horses into sessions for an experiential element to the therapeutic process. Why horses? Well, because they are relational creatures and can help clients learn how to build healthy relationships and name what gets in the way of creating relationships that are meaningful and fulfilling. With that, I will often pull from various resources and approaches to fit client’s unique experiences and needs, and I enjoy integrating faith when permitted and appropriate.
Do you feel overwhelmed and out of control? Are you dealing with difficult people and problematic situations? Let me help you focus on the things that you can control and can change. Let's focus on changing your attitudes, expectations and outlook. Sometimes it is also important to redefine boundaries and expectations with others. I have a positive approach, will make practical suggestions and will support you in making important decisions. I specialize in relationship issues, marital counseling, resolving trauma, anxiety, depression and life transition issues. I teach stress management, relaxation exercises and guided imagery.
