I help my clients dig deep within themselves for awareness, understanding, acceptance, change, and healing.

My Therapy Style

I believe knowledge is power, but we don't often know how to put that knowledge into practice; this is where I step in as your counselor. I help my clients dig deep within themselves for awareness, understanding, acceptance, change, and healing. This can sometimes be uncomfortable work, as it can take one out of their comfort zone. But it is there, through grit and grace, that we find courage, resolve, skills, solutions, and answers that are needed for enduring life's challenges. As your therapist, I will work with you as a teacher, guide, encourager, and supporter to help you become the best version of yourself.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I believe I was "called" to be a mental health professional. People often describe me as welcoming, kind, non-judgmental and trustworthy, which I believe naturally draws people to want to tell me their story. Throughout my life, I have found myself in various places where people were hurting and lonely and grasping for hope and help. Through these experiences and my servant's heart of caring, encouraging, and helping others, counseling just made sense.

What are your interests outside of work?

Two of my favorite things to do outside of work are relaxing on the lake or hiking a trail in the mountains with my husband and 3 dogs. I love traveling to new places with my husband, as well as watching movies and football, reading, watching my nephew play basketball, and spending time with my family.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I do 10-20 minutes of quiet time everyday for self-reflection, as well as a daily Christian devotional and prayer.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

The Ronald McDonald House is a favorite non-profit. My oldest granddaughter had to have open heart surgery at 6 months old and this was going to require significant hospital stay. We were 4 hours away from the hospital. Her parents were still in college, so they did not have the income to maintain a stay of that length. The Ronald McDonald House was right beside the hospital and provided them the opportunity to stay with their new baby the entire time, without the added financial burden. It was a Godsend for us, as well as to other family and friends that have been able to utilize it in similar situations.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by some form of movement like yoga, pilates, or walking and then making sure I get a good night's sleep. My best friend lives 3 hours away so being able to connect with her in-person is also a big re-charger for me.

Do you have any pets?

I have 3 dogs: Cooper, an English Cream Golden Retriever; Josie, a black Labradoodle; and Finnegan, the pup of Cooper and Josie. One of my favorite pet stories has to be the night Finnegan and his 7 siblings were born!
