My Ideal Client

Are you overwhelmed? Feeling defeated by life and and unsure how to get better? Whether you are experiencing anxiety or depression or any other situation, we will work together to get you through this difficult time. Change is possible and I will be there to support you.

My Approach to Helping

Every person has different needs, so I tailor my approach to meet your unique goals. Using research based interventions and skills, I will help you navigate challenges and even crises. One of my favorite tools for helping my clients process what is bothering them is EMDR. EMDR is a way to access negative life events and core beliefs and heal them in a way that leads to personal growth and peace. I truly love what I do and it would be my honor to work with you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I really enjoy people; getting to know them and finding out what makes them who they are and what makes them unique. I delight in developing a therapeutic relationship with my clients. I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to work in the field that I chose decades ago: counseling! When not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband (celebrating 22 years of marriage this year) and my four children. * B.S. in Marriage, Family, and Human Development* M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling* Certified Life Coach through Life Purpose Institute* Member of the World Association of Sand Therapy Professionals* Member of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy* Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (Externship)* Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1 Training* Gottman Method Treating Affairs and Trauma Training Star Behavioral Health Provider (Civilian Professional, Military Sensitivity) EMDR Trained

    Anxiety can feel like it takes over everything. Do you want to get to the core of why you are experiencing anxiety? Using EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, and restoration therapy, we will explore your past and your present fears and concerns while developing a plan for you to gain more understanding and compassion for yourself.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Using research based interventions, I help couples navigate conflicts such as communication, infidelity, and lack of connection. I utilize Gottman Method for Couples therapy as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy to deliver the most effective therapy for the couples that I work with. I recently completed training to become a Star Behavioral Health provider, which means that I am a civilian practitioner with military sensitivity. I welcome US service members.

  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    Many issues that come up between a couple relate to differences in parenting. Do you have a teenager that is struggling and you each have a different perspective on the issue? I can help resolve differences, allowing you both to reach consensus.
