I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a MA in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I have focused my counseling career on helping individuals adjust to various life transitions and traumas. These transitions may be due to retirement, parenthood, or moving into adulthood. The transitions may be by choice, such as marriage, or by force, such as a work-related injury. No matter what the cause of the life transitions, I have dedicated my career to helping people learn how to identify the skills they already possess, strengthen these skills, and then learn new skills in order to make the life changes they desire.
I also hold a BSW in Social Work from the University of Wyoming. Prior to becoming a counselor, I spent 16 years as a Social Worker focusing on helping individuals with chronic mental illness and life-altering disabilities learn to cope with life. My experience from this season of my career has helped enable me to look beyond the present circumstances and help individuals gain hope for a future created through circumstances, but not defined by those circumstances.
I believe that therapy is a journey for which all people can benefit in order to take charge of their lives and make intentional choices to find joy in the midst of a chaotic world. My role within this journey is to come alongside my client and help them grow during this season of change. I look forward to the opportunities for growth and change which is available as a partner with my clients.
