About me

I am certified as an LPC Supervisor for individuals preparing for their own careers in therapy. I am also interested in persons with trauma and chronic mental illness. Issues, due to these having a serious impact on a person’s mental health. I have had varied career path leading to me being a therapist, but the most important training I received was in Emergency Medicine. The result is as a former first responder, I have a strong interest in providing support for our firefighters, police officers, and medical teams.
I feel that transparency, honesty, and compassion are very important in any work I do with clients in order to build the necessary trust to get them the help they need for themselves. I work to provide a welcoming environment that provides a feeling of safety, inclusion, and confidence in the therapeutic process. I’ve been practicing over 18 years in a variety of settings in my community, including crisis centers, community clinics, and hospitals. I have also practiced in traditional counseling practice settings.
I am always interested in helping people to understand the value of therapeutic work, and I look forward to going on that journey with you.
