My Background 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, who holds a Master’s of Science in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas. I started my counseling career in 2016,  working at a non-profit organization, working with women and teens who experienced sex trafficking, complex trauma, and poverty.  Since 2019, I have worked in the private practice setting specializing in complex trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and perinatal mood disorders. 

 

 I am certified and a Consultant in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which is an evidence-based treatment that allows people to heal from emotional distress related to any negative life experiences.

 

I received extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which is an effective therapy for adults and teens with a history of trauma and/or who struggle with managing their emotions, difficulty finding joy, and struggle in interpersonal relationships.

 

Additionally, I work with couples and have completed Level 2 of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, a research-based approach to help couples increase intimacy, respect, and understanding.

Since becoming a mom, I have received extensive training in perinatal mental health to be able to support and educate new moms and parents. 

 

Clients can expect me to take a compassionate, non-judgmental, client-centered approach, tailoring treatment to fit each person's individual goals. 

 

​In my spare time, you can find me planning my next travel, eating delicious food, reading, being out in nature. exercising, and spending time with family and friends. ​

Who I Help

People who want to heal from life's painful experiences. People who are traumatized, overwhelmed and wanting a different, more peaceful life.

How I Do It

I tailor treatment to each unique  individual. In the initial intake, I spend time getting to know your story and learn about your life dreams. In the second session, we develop a "road map," to reach your life dreams.

What's in It for You

Healing. Growth. Peace. Purpose.
