Owner, Director, Therapist


     First and foremost, seeking support through counseling is a strength! And even if you or your loved ones see it as a weakness or something scary, it's okay to feel weak and it's okay to be nervous. These are normal human emotions - especially when we try something new.


As a professional counselor, I am committed to a certain way of doing things:

  • To listen, and listen well

  • To be kind, respectful, and fun (sometimes!)

  • To help you feel heard, understood, and valued

  • To help you understand yourself and others more deeply

  • To help you set and reach goals

  • To utilize proven techniques backed by research 

  • To offer suggestions that may help

  • To challenge you at times, in a respectful way

  • To follow ethical guidelines set forth by the American Counseling Association

      The main counseling theory that I utilize is Carl Rogers’ Client Centered Therapy, which emphasizes an unconditional positive regard for the client and a non-judgmental approach. I strive to see every client with respect, genuine care and concern, and even awe at their unique life experiences and way of being. I also incorporate artistic, Cognitive Behavioral, existential, imagery, play, solution-focused, attachment-based, and trauma techniques.  I work best with children of all ages, young adults, women, parents, couples, families, and veterans. Some of my areas of focus include Adoption and Fostering, Anxiety/OCD/Panic/Phobias, Christian Counseling, Infant Adjustment and Bonding, Parenting, Relationships, Self-esteem, and Trauma.

      I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, the highest level of licensure for counselors, as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I have completed many types of professional training, including hypnotherapy, Externship and Core Skills for Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy, Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, and various trauma therapies. 


Counseling is an art - and I am an artist at heart. Let's make something beautiful together!
