I believe the path to wellness involves taking a deeply personal journey back to self. We cannot fully connect with others without first connecting with ourselves. Meditation personally changed my life, so I enjoy encompassing mindfulness into my practice and teaching even the busiest minds how to meditate. The universe is constantly changing, so we are constantly changing, but learning to accept reality on life's terms can be a challenge even for the strongest person. Sometimes life’s misfortunes can leave us feeling lost, alone, or afraid. While these moments are often highly transformative, they do not define us. There is hope. The path to wellness was never intended to be walked alone and seeking support can allow us to reach our highest potential.

Hello and welcome! If you are here you have already taken the most important step and decided that you are ready to make a change and begin healing. My goal is to support you in achieving your unique goals and provide encouragement to reach your full potential.
I am a Licensed Associate Counselor who primarily works with teenage and adult clients through a person centered and integrative approach to therapy. In my experience of working with youth and adults who have experienced various forms of trauma and mood disturbances, I find that a flexible approach to treatment can focus on the specific needs you intend to prioritize in our sessions. I utilize a blend of trauma processing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based approaches, and art therapy to ensure a collaborative therapeutic alliance. I provide therapy services for those struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, relationship and attachment concerns, trauma, school and work related stress, self-esteem issues, and other general mental health concerns.
Now accepting new clients! WEEKDAY AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS. BOTH IN-PERSON and FLEXIBLE TELEHEALTH OPTIONS.
Let’s get real. I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Seeking out a therapist who can help you on that path is the first step. How can I help you?
Many people see therapy as a very one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. In my approach, you will find that I keep it real! I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for while enjoying the process as much as possible and experiencing both yourself and your world in new ways. Your therapy does not always need to be painful.
Our lives are too short to surrender to bad relationships, hold grudges, let trauma control us, or be anxious/angry all the time. You deserve to be free of emotional pain and able to take everything that comes your way and respond to it with wisdom and peace. You deserve to find meaning/purpose in work, family, friendships, spirituality, and all other life areas.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Gottman approaches (Couples therapy). I can utilize other modalities as needed. I specialize in anxiety, trauma, depression, substance addictions, sexual addictions/disorders, and couples counseling. I have a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northern Arizona University which builds on over twenty years of work with clients in community corrections. I have helped individuals and couples find healing and understanding in desperate situations. Give me a call and let’s continue to write your story!
Deciding to begin therapy can be an exciting and/or anxiety provoking experience. We usually decide to start therapy because something does not seem to be the way we want it to be. Each person's story is unique, and every individual has their own creative way of working towards their goals. Our individuality has its own strengths and its own vulnerabilities.
No matter what you’re going through, therapy can be a chance to get to know yourself better and learn what you want today and in the future. I help clients make sense of what they’re going through, how to cope with it, and how to feel confident about themselves moving forward.
There are a variety of treatments I utilize to address challenges, depending on the situation. CBT, ACT, Mindfulness-Based Counseling or Client-Centered Therapy. My specialties include adults, couples, with trauma, anxiety, depression, and relational issues. We may start by working on self-esteem, by learning to recognize the strengths you already have.
We may challenge negative thoughts about yourself, that are getting in your way to progress toward the happiness that you deserve. We’ll start wherever you’re at and make a treatment plan together to meet your goals. It is important to me, to create a therapeutic environment which is safe and nonjudgmental. I am currently accepting new clients. I’m here for you when you’re ready.

I have been a School Psychologist since 2010 in several states including Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Utah. In addition to school psychology, I am also a licensed associate clinical counselor in Arizona and Colorado. I received my undergraduate degrees in Public Administration and Administration of Law Enforcement Organizations from Ottawa University (Kansas). I hold a Master of Education degree in Counseling from Northern Arizona University and a second Masters of Arts degree in Forensic Psychology from Phoenix School of Professional Psychology. I completed a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Clinical Counseling and a second Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in School Psychology from Ottawa University in 2009. I have been a practicing school psychologist for eleven years working with children, adolescents, and young adults of all ages from pre-kindergarten to post high school.
My professional focus has centered upon improving the lives of children and adolescents. I am particularly interested in helping children and adolescents through collaborating with school and home-based intervention efforts. Having worked in school systems for many years, I am aware of the challenges and obstacles that families can encounter when seeking services for their children, and in the importance of "advocacy" when attempting to initiate and maintain such services. I also understand there are unique challenges in parenting such children. In addition to direct clinical services, I specialize in providing diagnostic assessment and evaluation services and report writing that meets both school and state eligibility requirements. For the past 11 years I have maintained a focus on children and families who are navigating the challenges of specific learning disabilities. Common problem areas that I routinely work with in my practice include academic difficulties, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, emotional, behavioral disorders, and other developmental disabilities.
Hello, I am a Licensed Associate Counselor in Arizona. I treat clients with OCD and trauma.
TRAUMA: Do you feel stuck, maybe unable to move forward or make decisions? Does it seem like your reactions are unpredictable or that your emotions are overwhelming or numb? When you have experienced trauma, either in your past or present, it can affect your body and mind. Healing from trauma comes from within. You have the compacity to heal, you just need some tools and understanding. I am EMDR trained and use Internal Family System, and TF-CBT to help my clients through their trauma.
OCD: Do you have unwanted intrusive repetitive thoughts? Do you do things to try to get rid of the thought or to satisfy the thought? Do you spend too much time ruminating about these thoughts? Do you wish you could stop all the mental reviewing, checking or reassurance seeking? People with OCD know that what they are doing doesn’t make sense, yet they don’t feel like they have a choice. There is proven help to alleviate the pain of OCD. I use many therapies for OCD. I am trained in ERP (Exposure and response prevention therapy), Rumination focused therapy (RF), and Inference based cognitive therapy (I-CBT) and can teach you the tools you need to live a values based life that does not let your OCD take over.
I take a caring, nonjudgmental, but curious, approach when helping clients. My love of life helps me lead clients to find their strengths and sometimes laugh along the way. I believe the best therapy is collaborative, where clients learn how life experiences have affected them and their learned responses. Understanding this will help them make changes necessary to improve their lives. I work with clients ages 12 and up and offer some evening appointments. In my personal time, I enjoy anything outdoors and spending time with my family and dog. Life is an adventure and I love to explore all the variety life has to offer.
My goals are to create a safe, supportive, and trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients to help assist them in their healing journey. We all have life stories that impact us and make us who we are. I strive to ensure that my clients feel comfortable disclosing their story. Together we will work to identify past and present issues, traumas, core beliefs, negative/irrational thoughts, needs, strengths, and determine specific tailored treatment goals. My passion is to be a continual source of support, advocate, and guidance through the healing process.
I am EMDR trained and utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strengths-based therapy, Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). I work with teenagers 13+ to young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, body-image, self-esteem, grief, adjustment issues, and other mental health issues.
Welcome!! I am excited to partner with you on your journey towards healing! I know that making the first step is challenging. You may think of this decision as the last resort but it's really just the beginning. I am happy to partner with you as you navigate the healing process.
I am Trauma Informed and play therapy certified. I have over 8 years of experience working with children as young as 5 years old, adolescents, and young adults (18-25) in direct and indirect settings. I have experience in many areas such as childhood trauma, ADHD, depression, stress, school issues, anxiety, anger management, physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and behavior issues.
I know that one box does not fit all; therefore, I believe in approaching clients in a manner that caters to their own unique needs. I am experienced with different treatment modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt), person centered therapy, motivational interviewing, and play therapy.
My goal is to provide you a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can be yourself as well as learn and improve in areas you see fit.

It is through reflection that we gain an understanding of where we stand and what we believe. Perhaps it is finally time for you to take care of you. Therapy offers a special and dedicated time for you to explore and discover who you really are, while giving attention to the parts of you that are hurting, as well as to parts of you that aren't fully alive. But therapy is not just for the challenging moments; it's also designed for when your life may be perfectly fine. My goal is to help you feel most settled within yourself, to develop very fulfilling and satisfying relationships, and to create purpose and meaning in your life.
It is through my experience working with children, adolescents, and adults that I have developed my passion for working with all types of individuals. Each therapy session is tailored to specifically meet your needs as an individual. I am trained in EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and other modalities that can be of professional help to you in achieving your personal goals. Some of the topics I specialize in assisting clients in navigating are anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, addiction, codependency, and other general mental health concerns.
I hope to guide you on this journey in such a way that you'll come to understand yourself deeply and to appreciate life as you never knew to be possible. You can and will be ready to take on the challenges of life, feeling empowered to thrive in any new or overwhelming experience or encounter.
