My Ideal Client

Anxiety, depression, rage, fear, and low self-esteem is a major concern in our day to day lives. Are you feeling it too? Let's work together to understand what’s happened to you, how it's connected to your story and how it's impacting you right now. Regain some sense of control with an in-depth understanding that the most difficult issues within partnering, parenting, friendships, career, and lifestyle are impacted by your unique story and framed by your beliefs, you can find some relief.

My Approach to Helping

I utilize an integrative approach that focuses relational neuroscience (understanding the intimate connection of your mind and body), attachment science and story informed trauma recovery. I work from the perspective that people make decisions based on the information available to them, and I seek to empower all of my clients through education. I'll guide you through the process of truly knowing your story in uncovering what's worked for you and what has hindered you from feeling balanced and successful in your life. We'll work together to discover who you are beneath all the stress and chaos you've endured.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Leading people through the process of recovering from their stories of trauma is my life's work. I know the amount of courage it takes to face the hardest parts of our stories not knowing whether it's going to be worth the effort and discomfort it takes to work through to the other side. I've walked this path with many people and I'll trust the process for you until you can trust it within yourself. I have trained extensively to understand the long term effects of childhood adversities and traumas including domestic abuse, neglect, sexual traumas, and betrayal traumas such as infidelities. There is hope for life to feel different and I'm here to help you find it. With a masters in clinical counseling from Western Seminary, I am a nationally certified counselor and am in process of licensure in two states. I'm under the supervision of Lori Whittaker, as well as training under master therapist Byron Kehlor in the art of Story Informed Trauma Therapy.

Issues I Treat


  • Domestic Abuse External link

    Domestic abuse is a relational pattern of emotional and psychological harm in intimate relationships. It can leave behind deep wounds that most people don't see, although the impact of these experiences are evident in the painful memories, anxiety, depression, and self-loathing of the person who was harmed.

  • Divorce External link

    Divorce isn't something that just happens, it's an outcome of deep dysfunction within a marriage. Marriages end for many reasons: betrayal, emotional and physical danger, infidelity, manipulation... They're often necessary in order for the individual parties to have a chance to rebuild health within themselves that was impossible within the marriage.

  • Sexual Abuse External link

    Sexual abuse is unwanted sexual behavior between a person who holds more power than another person and forces them into sexual acts using threats of violence, using force and/or taking advantage of a vulnerability. Power can be described as authority, age, status, intelligence, etc.

  • Codependency External link

    Codependency is most easily identified in this way: one person carrying the majority of the weight and responsibility of the relationship in order to meet a deep need of approval and acceptance. It often leaves people feeling overwhelmed and undervalued.
