I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the States of Montana and Kentucky. I have been working with individuals and families for 15 years on a wide variety of concerns ranging from depression, anxiety, stress management, grief and loss, care-giving stress, dealing with a major medical diagnosis and life transitions. I have given many presentations nationally on coping with cancer as a young adult, grief and loss and dealing with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
My counseling approach is dynamic and interactive. I approach areas of concerns with a strengths based approach in order to help clients identify their goals and find ways within themselves to deal with difficult emotions. I also believe that change is possible and we are all capable of change with the right set of support and tools. I use a variety of cognitive and dialectical behavioral interventions along with mindfulness skills to help round out your experiencing and build up coping skills and achieve your goals.
In my free time I like to camp and hike with my family in Montana and all over the Pacific Northwest and spend time with extended family in Kentucky. I also practice Yoga and enjoy baking and cooking and swimming with my kids. I look forward to speaking with you and determining how I can help you achieve your goals and cope with difficult emotions.
