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.

Do We Fit?

To help you better decide if we’re a Client-Therapist match, here are some fun facts about me:

  • I’m a wife and mom. I experience both marriage and parenting as rewarding experiences that are inherently challenging. I feel grateful to experience these roles with such wonderful humans.

  • I also live with a Maine Coon cat and the cutest, snortiest pug. I am an animal-lover, but pugs have my heart. I enjoy participating in Boise’s Pug-O-Ween event each year.

  • I have experienced my own traumas, grief, anxiety, and depression symptoms. I have an inside look into these experiences that provide me with empathetic insight. I also know from personal and clinical experience that recovery from these often-debilitating conditions is indeed possible.

  • I have spent years engaging in my own personal therapy and have learned a lot about myself and the counseling field from therapists I chose to work with and therapists that weren’t as great of fit for me. I feel grateful to have personally experienced the healing power of therapy. I find it important to help smash the stigma of mental health providers seeking therapy. Remember what I said about every human being needing support and guidance? That means us therapists too.

  • I knew I wanted to be a therapist at the age of fourteen. Having the privilege of knowing my career path at a young age has helped me conquer life’s hurdles with the perspective of “I will get through this and thus be able to better support others in doing the same.” Cheesy? Sure, but it’s true.

  • I like dark chocolate, a little too much. I also like TikTok, a little too much.

  • Ok, I’ll admit it: I’m a sucker for reality TV.
