As a professional clinician who has journeyed alongside hurting individuals and couples for over 25 years, I continue to appreciate each step taken in the process toward healing and growth. I am honored to be invited into your most vulnerable moments -- creating a safe space for you to explore the traumas and triumphs of life. My heart is to assist you in increasing self-awareness, discovering inner strengths and personal values to guide you on your path.
I especially enjoy working with relationship issues (pre-marital, marital, affair-recovery, divorce recovery), anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, inner healing and other common mental health issues. I also provide equine-assisted psychotherapy (learning about oneself through connection with horses) offsite at a nearby location.

MY TREATMENT APPROACH
I work with clients from a family systems framework while utilizing many forms of therapy from my broad range of experience and training. I am trained in Emotion Focused Therapy, the John Gottman Institute (techniques providing high levels of success in couple's therapy), a Certified Prepare-Enrich facilitator and a certified EAGALA (equine assisted growth and learning) facilitator. I include treatment for the whole person, relational, emotional, and spiritual.
I will tailor your treatment according to your individual needs.
