My experience & approach to therapy
I have assisted clients who have experienced grief, anger, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, adjustment problems, LGBT issues, serious mental illness and addiction. Navigating these challenges alone can be a daunting task. I look forward to helping you pursue self acceptance, healing and discovering ways to cope with life’s challenges.Request an Appointment
I have been happily married to my husband since 2007 and we have three small children. I have great perspective on the lives of working families and the struggles that come with this. Our family calls Hood County our home and have a sense of connection to the community and the desire to make this a happy and healthy place.
I am dedicated to helping others and believe that all people deserve the right to make their futures happier. I am a Christian and will offer a Christian perspective if that is what a client requests or needs but will not force these views on anyone.
I am a Certified Nurturing Parenting Program Facilitator. The Nurturing Parenting Programs are a family-centered initiative designed to build nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to abusive and neglecting parenting and child-rearing practices. The long term goals are to prevent recidivism in families receiving social services, lower the rate of multi-parent teenage pregnancies, reduce the rate of juvenile delinquency and alcohol abuse, and stop the inter-generational cycle of child abuse by teaching positive parenting behaviors.
I provide therapy to couples and families as well as individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults. My specialties include marriage and family counseling, serious mental illness support and women’s issues. Please feel free to call or email me for a free ten minute consultation.
