About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Idaho and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I graduated in 2008 from Northwest Nazarene University with a master degree in Community Counseling. I have over 13 years of experience working as a mental health counselor and my main areas of focus are Grief and Loss and self esteem. I am certified through Evergreen Certifications as an Advanced Grief Counseling Specialist. I have earned a certificate of Professional Studies in Adlerian Psychology through the Idaho Society of Individual Psychology and am a current member of ISIP. I have completed level one training for Emotionally Focused Individual therapy and level one training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I have received several hours of training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Treating Complex Trauma. I am also a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator.
My approach to therapy is not to provide all the answers but to instead provide empathy, encouragement, and emotional support and to help you identify your own values, strengths, attributes, and goals, that can help you overcome challenges you are facing and that can help you find solutions that lead to more positive outcomes. I consider myself an eclectic therapist in that I draw from several therapeutic approaches such as Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Adlerian Psychotherapy, and Logotherapy.
