About me

I work with you to identify how you want your life to look and feel like and then to address any blocks you might have to having the life you desire. I want to help you achieve your desired therapy goals as quickly as possible while giving you as much time as you need. I teach mindfulness skills to clients and skills to help them learn how to take control of their emotions so that their emotions are no longer controlling them. I use dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, EMDR therapy, energy psychology methods and other types of therapy that might be helpful depending on your preferences and problems. I am also a certified life coach.

I got my start working in residential treatment with counseling and providing case management for people who have severe and persistent mental illness. From there, I moved to an outpatient community mental health agency, where I worked for five years as a therapist specializing in helping people who have co-occurring disorders (one or more mental health disorders and a substance use disorder and/or addiction). While working in community mental health, I started my private practice and did both until September 2016, when I went full time in private practice. My coaching practice is online and I facilitate a personal growth and development group.

I have a bachelor's degree in social science, a master's degree in counseling psychology, seven years (ABD) in a doctoral program for counseling psychology, and I transferred to a PhD program in psychology specializing in consciousness, spirituality, and integrative health.
