About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    kind, thoughtful, insightful, compassionate, direct, and kindhearted with the right touch of humor at the right times.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    that I am informed by cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and strengths-based theories. I draw on these theories to help clients identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, strengthen their relationships, and overcome challenges.

  • Together, we will:

    draw upon my 30+ years of experience in the field to make sense of your experienced trauma and grief, bringing you back home to your true Self. Every journey is unique. Bring me what you have and we will get to work. I look forward to meeting you!

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are 18 and older who are grieving, are wanting to recover from trauma, who struggle with relationships, and who may have uncertainty about their life path and purpose. My clients are highly motivated to make shifts to begin living their best lives.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Let's be honest- most therapists enter this field wanting to make sense of their own trauma. I fit into that category and have done my work.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I am fully present and actively listening to you in session and am not afraid to challenge you on the thoughts and behaviors that hold you back.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I have worked with many people in many settings; crisis mental health, community mental health, hospitals, on ranches offering Equine Assisted therapy, providing outreach therapy, and in community social work. Every experience shaped who I am today.
