Specialties: EMDR (Trauma), Substance Use Disorders, and Couples

There was always something in my Spirit that drew me close to people and I had strong desire to understnad their stories. My mom called me "nosey" but I was an "investigator." I want to know what makes us tick!

There is also another deep part of me that loves to be creative. As life went on for me, my passion for people, stories, and creativity lead me to my calling of counseling. 

I attended Mount Mary University where I obtained my BS in Behavioral Science and MS in Community Counseling. After graduating I also went on to obtain my Substance Abuse designation (SAC) and become Trauma-Informed Provider, using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).  

In my free time I enjoy being with my family, being outdoors (in my hammock), reading, writing, and of course, being creative!

Allow me to take this journey forward alongside you, never ahead or behind. My approach to therapy is to be a fellow traveler for a portion of your life's path. I will work with you to identify obstacles in your path, how they got there, and how we can work together to overcome them. I work from a strengths based perspective to identify, further develop, and appreciate your already present skill set and resiliency factors. We will work together to tackle trauma that has negatively impacted your life or ease into and conquer a transition or adjustment period.
