Hope & Healing
Alongside the beauty and joy of our daily lives there is also
heartache, challenge, transition and pain.
Sometimes we need someone to walk alongside us during these times
to help us find the hope and healing we seek.
Welcome to my practice. I'm glad your here!
I have been in the counseling profession for over 15 years. My conversational style creates a caring, non-judgmental, and authentic environment for my clients to share and begin to find the hope and healing they are seeking. My focus is on helping my clients work through trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions and other challenges.
My experience in the helping profession has led me to many opportunities and a wide range of people all unique and beautiful. In pursuing my education I was naturally drawn toward the helping professions and received a Bachelor's in Social Work and later a Master's in Counseling Psychology. I have experience working with children, young adults, families, those in the foster care system, as well as those with special needs. I especially enjoy using EMDR and Brainspotting in my work with my clients, as well as being able to bring my faith background into a therapeutic relationship when desired by my client.
I am a wife and a mother of 3 teens, one of whom myself and my husband had the privilege of adopting and growing with through the process of building attachment and navigating special needs.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
EMDR is a well-researched and established therapy that combines imagery, mindfulness, and cognitive techniques to meet the client’s treatment needs. EMDR therapy is often used in trauma counseling and in the treatment of anxiety.
EMDR therapy usually involves focus on a traumatic or disturbing memory while doing back and forth eye movements, listening to alternating tones, and/or feeling alternating vibrations in your hands. This process enables the brain to resolve emotional trauma and gain insight into the circumstance in a way that is often more effective than traditional talk therapy.
Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. It is effective for a wide variety of emotional and somatic conditions. Brainspotting is particularly effective with trauma-based situations, helping to identify and heal underlying trauma that contributes to anxiety, depression and other behavioral conditions.
