Hi! Therapy with me isn’t boring or sterile; I am passionate about this meaningful work. As a therapist, I am warm, relational, and weave in humor (as appropriate, of course). I am sensitive and perceptive to the unique nature of each person and will use a holistic approach to tailor counseling sessions to your specific needs. I incorporate elements of several theoretical orientations including but not limited to: attachment theory, internal family systems, neuroscience, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques, and trauma-informed approaches. I have specialized training in both Brainspotting Phase One and Phase Two and EMDR: two leading therapeutic interventions that promote healing from traumatic experiences and resulting cognitive, emotional, and somatic symptoms. I also have training in integrated mental health. Our mental health is interconnected with other systems in our body, so I find it impactful to have a mind-body integrated approach to healing.
I earned my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Eastern Oregon University and my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Idaho State University. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Idaho and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have eight years of combined professional experience within the mental health field including counseling, case management, peer support, and community-based rehabilitation. I currently serve as the secretary for Idaho Association of Marriage and Family Counselors.
I work with adults and adolescents who are facing grief, anxiety, depression, perinatal/postpartum depression and anxiety, OCD, ADHD, and those who have experienced a single-incident traumatic event or live with complex trauma. I aid Clients in managing stress and transitions relating to relationships, parenting, family, academics, systemic issues, and more. I have experience supporting Clients who are navigating identity exploration and changes including but not limited to: gender, sexualty, spirituality, and differentiation from the family unit. I am committed to providing and advocating for culturally informed care. I kindly welcome individuals from any and all cultures, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities, religions, and spiritualities.
I’m glad you are here and I would be honored to support you on your therapeutic journey.
