It’s so hard to go anywhere and do anything because everyone is walking around like life is normal. Your life feels like it’s in pieces. If you were walking around with a broken leg, everyone would notice. But your heart is broken, and no one seems to care. You look at your self in the mirror and don’t even recognize who you are anymore. It doesn’t feel like things will ever get better. You know you can’t keep going like this anymore.

I began my career in 1979 with a spiritual gift for serving others. Obtaining an MSW in 2007, my graduate internship launched a church-based ministry offering Christian counseling. Currently a LICSW I use evidence/research-based techniques, including cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused and narrative therapy to strengthen client and family systems. I have proven competent in my clinical practice and am ready to assist clients in realizing their resilience in moving forward towards a positive future.

Experience a New Now by resolving your past. Most people don’t realize physical and mental health are intricately interwoven. Memory is encoded with the emotional and neurological information you experience at the time of the incident. These emotions and sensations are then released into the body when the memory is triggered. The survival functions of fight, flight or freeze shut down the immune system, thus undermining overall health. Using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), the brain reprocesses these memories, releasing and metabolizing the distress, and placing the memory squarely into your past.

Life challenges all of us. At times we need support in recovering from our experiences and learning new skills to move into our future with hope and confidence. I offer counseling for children, adolescents, and adults individually or as families. I have experience working with grief and loss, trauma and abuse recovery, divorce recovery, parenting issues, depression and anxiety. I incorporate many different therapeutic techniques but draw more strongly from cognitive-behavioral therapy. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

My passion is to help survivors of trauma, challenging life experiences and grief events become unstuck and break the cycle of emotional pain. Often these difficult situations from the past have led to an inability to move forward in life, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, eating disorders and PTSD. Sometimes they lead to questioning your own faith and purpose in life. If you're feeling lost, hurt and emotionally overwhelmed and if you're looking to heal from the past so you can move forward into a brighter future, I'd love to come along side of you on your journey.

Life can be exhausting. It can feel overwhelming, confusing, and uncomfortable. This is especially true when trying to figure out how to navigate life events, relationships, barriers, and trauma. We could all use a little support along the way. I believe when we tap into our strengths and find perspective, we can rise above difficult circumstances to live a more balanced, meaningful life.

For some people an awakening need for therapy may stem from a single traumatic event and for others it is the accumulation of struggles that have worn them down over time. Maybe you experienced the loss of a loved one through death, divorce or broken relationships? Maybe you have experienced changes to your life roles such as a parent/child/employee/leader. Have you lost sight of your faith and this loss has you questioning everything? Are you searching for reconnection with the person you know you were meant to be? Soul Connections is a safe space to process through life events while developing a plan for reconnection.

There are many reasons to consider therapy as a right choice for you. There can be overwhelming feelings of anxiety and stress, relationships that become a struggle, a longing to be understood and accepted, a shaky self-confidence and many others. I specialize in working with three life stages that can be incredibly challenging to navigate. The teen years, the transition to adulthood and the parenting years can all create immense stress and struggles. I would like to walk beside you and help you navigate those years in a way that brings you from surviving to thriving!

Facing emotional challenges can make you feel alone and lost. When people can’t physically see the wounds you carry you can wonder if you’re the only one, that you’re “just this way” and there’s nothing to be done, you’re broken. You have every right to feel what you’re feeling, your emotions, actions, thoughts, all of it makes perfect sense given what you’ve gone through AND change can happen. I want you to feel accepted while we push for change together. I don’t believe anyone is broken even when we feel that way sometimes, I believe we face challenges and challenges can be overcome.

Many of us, at some point in our lives, will need to reach out for assistance. We will need someone to come alongside us and provide support and a new perspective as we navigate issues that arise in our lives. I consider it a privilege to be a part of that journey with you. My hope is that we can work together to discover your strengths and unique characteristics that you can use to overcome the obstacles you may face.

What type of Yakima County 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 Yakima County?
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.
