My Story

I enjoy working with clients that come as they are; whether that be a client who needs assistance with accountability while pursuing their goals or if a client is interested in exploring and beginning their journey in therapy. It is always a pleasure joining a client in their journey.

I am an Army Veteran. I am professionally trained and experienced to treat and work through trauma, complex PTSD, addiction, anxiety, navigating work and personal life balance, and military life and transition as well as general life transition. I am EMDR Trained through the EMDR Institute.

Therapy is a unique experience that can involve exploration and self-discovery. The best part of the experience is being able to take the journey of curiosity with a safe person. I thoroughly enjoy working with adolescents and adults through Eye Movement Desensitization Re-Processing (EMDR), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior (TF-CBT), Person-Centered Therapy Modalities. 

If you are looking for a therapist, I welcome you and praise you for putting yourself first. Choosing ourselves is often the hardest task to do! Please feel free to call or email to schedule your first appointment. I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you on your journey as we navigate the best options for you.
