About me

I have worked with clients in various capacities since 1995 (Licensed in 2004) and I have learned people know themselves better than they think they do. YOU have in you what it takes to be amazing. I am here to help you make it happen. Everyone has a gift and a talent, no matter what their past has been. We can learn to move forward and grow. Sometimes we just need a little help, and I am here to walk alongside you in that process.

I became a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the State of Ohio in 2004, and a Supervising Counselor in 2007. In addition, I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC), and have been licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Arizona since 2023.

I have dedicated my career to working with individuals with chronic illness, disabilities, caregivers, victims and survivors of domestic violence, and individuals who are experiencing relationship issues. I also have years of experience working with individuals in crisis, dealing with depression, anxiety, and past trauma. I believe you can work through past difficulties.

I enjoy helping people create their best lives, by working with individuals, couples, and families. I am here to assist you in your journey. My goal is to help you decide what you would like to change, even if it is just to do ONE thing differently. Because even ONE thing can make a huge impact on your life.

My style is supportive and caring. I also can be quite blunt at times, when gentle confrontation is needed, or when a client is feeling stuck and needs to "push through" something they are struggling with. We work together to find the appropriate "tools" for your toolbox-- what coping skills or new knowledge will work for you to alleviate the difficulties or discomfort you are feeling?

I believe in providing a non-judgmental, safe space where you feel heard and explore your thoughts and feelings. This allows you to gain new insight, allowing you to create the life, career, and relationships you desire.

I look forward to working with you!

She's been wonderful so far. Very prompt with her messages and is always sending me more stuff to work on. I'd recommend her to anyone going thru anything similar that I am.

Dr. Preece is a tremendous therapist. She's become a great support system for me since I started working with her a few months ago. You can tell she genuinely cares by the way she listens, asks questions, and responds to what we discuss. She is always consistent in the way she conducts herself and the energy she brings throughout our sessions.

Dr. Preece is a knowledgeable and empathetic therapist who listens to my concerns and gives me helpful feedback. She keeps track of my concerns and progress over time and reflects on it from time to time in our sessions. It is very encouraging to hear that she sees my progress as much as I do.
