I am glad you are here. I commend you for taking this step and reaching out to seek support. Life can be extremely challenging, and we all need help sometimes. I imagine you are here searching for hope and relief from your pain and suffering.
One of the most important things to me as a therapist is our collaboration and connection. Because healing happens in connection and relationship, the therapeutic relationship is the foundation of our work together. I offer a safe and compassionate space where you are heard, accepted, and valued and can reclaim your power and be freed from shame.
I focus on meeting you where you are without judgment and hold space as you heal and grow. When clients feel supported in a nurturing, attuned, empathic, and trustworthy relationship, they can begin to take risks to be curious, honest, and transparent to share their stories, gain insight into how their stories have shaped them, and create new meaning about their experiences.
I have worked with individual adult women, teens, and children experiencing various problems such as depression, anxiety, adjustments to life transitions, grief and loss, trauma, and abuse. As a law enforcement wife of 22 years, I am familiar with the unique challenges of first responder life. You will find that I am down-to-earth and approachable, and I will incorporate humor and laughter into our sessions. I take a person-centered and strengths-based approach but integrate aspects of cognitive behavioral, narrative, and psychodynamic therapy into my work with clients. I can also incorporate your faith principles into our work by request. I respect clients of all backgrounds and believe everyone holds significant worth and potential.
