About Me

Hello there! Glad you have come to my page.

It can be difficult to reach out let alone find the right counselor. I am sure you are curious to know how I can help.

My goal is always to be a spring board towards understanding on the road of client discovery and resolution. Whatever the challenge may be, big or small.

I don’t see my role as fixing anything or anyone. I am here to be a person who listens through a lens of psychological expertise to give you the best information for your situation. To listen in complete confidence to help you discover what brings meaning in your life and set a course to get there.

While some people only need a few sessions to get back on track for others it can take longer. It is up to you.

I’m not here to tell you what to do but rather to make available to you all of what I am trained to know, facilitated by your unique needs, and delivered in a way that challenges and empowers you to move forward. A conduit of information at your disposal.

I believe in keeping things simple. Life and work should not have to be complicated. My practice model focuses on the power of information in human exchange. My approach is practical, solution focused, and includes education about why we do what we do as well as evidence-based techniques to manage mental health.

My training and experience go back over twenty years when I began as a part-time peer and faith-based counselor. Over the years I gained experience as a behavioral management specialist and coach, later moving on to complete a master’s degree in professional counseling. Currently, I am working on a dissertation for a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I spent several years studying under a master to acquire specialized training as a Choice Theory Psychologist and Certified Reality Therapist. My career background spans corporate, clinical, non-profit, and managed care, education, mental health, and public policy.

As a coach I serve professionals in the workplace. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I provide mental health counseling. Since 2009, my professional story includes the privilege of working with a diverse range of populations primarily in the great Southwest. Adults, youth, and families. The best part of which was the rich cultural heritage that all clients brought with them to educate me on various worldviews.

My credentials include assessing and treating psychiatric conditions. However, I am much more interested in helping define the immediate problem and explore strategies towards solutions than assigning diagnostic labels.

If you are experiencing a problem today, emotionally, psychologically, at home or work, let my years of expertise and knowledge in psychology work for you today! Schedule a time and we can begin to work through it together.

Dr. Lannerholm is a very perceptive person. She found an approach that is best for me - focusing on the science of the brain and the body - because she knew I am a physics student, and it works really well for me! So I assume she finds such a personal approach for everyone, based on their lifestyle and preferences, that's so wise. She is very knowledgeable, as she can simplify a complicated scientific thing like amygdala using life examples, or on the contrary take something simple like stress and explain the very complex machinery behind it. She radiates such serenity and friendliness, that she quickly convinced me that it's going to be alright, that I can "retrain" my brain to get rid of my issues, and that they will not be there forever. I am really glad to have her as my therapist right now :)
