Are you feeling lost, hopeless, or stuck in a rut?
Seasons of our lives can bring uncertainty and pain. It’s an unavoidable part of the human experience.
While we can’t change the past or prevent bad things from happening, we can control our own actions and attitudes.
Let’s work together to help you move past the uncertainty and pain to leading a healthy and joyful life!
Who I work with
I am passionate about partnering with adults of all ages as they navigate difficulties in the present and heal from past hurts. I am particularly interested in working with adults over 50 and Military Veterans.
Men and Women 50+
Some of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in counseling have been with individuals and couples over 50.
Whether you are a caregiver, an empty-nester, or a sufferer of chronic pain, I want to help you adjust to new stages and help you live life to the fullest.
Military Veterans and Military Family Members
As a Military wife and counselor of Military personnel, I understand the adjustment from Military to civilian life.
Frequent relocations, complex Military systems, and adjusting from Military to civilian life are all areas that can be major stressors for you and your relationships.
With my experience and specialized training in working for the Military, I can help you navigate these challenges while preserving your relationships and peace of mind.
The challenges of aging and the military can put a strain not only on yourself but also your marriage. I love working with older couples and couples in the military to help them become stronger, healthier, and more loving with their spouses.
My primary method of treatment is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which is based on 25 years of research and is considered one of the most effective treatments for repairing emotional injuries relationships.
No matter what you and your spouse are facing, my goal will be to help you rediscover love and strengthen your loving bond.
Teaching is one of my greatest joys. I have had the privilege of facilitating Pre-marital workshops for engaged couples, coping skills workshops for teens, and basic mental health information groups for family members of adults with mental illness.
I’m trained to facilitate curricula endorsed by the US Army and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). I am available to teach these and many other mental health subjects to groups in the community.
How I Work
My style of counseling is down-to-earth and personal. I use a variety of techniques and tailor my approach to the needs of my clients.
My job is not to give advice or judge you. I will listen and offer insight and support. I will also challenge thoughts and actions that may be holding you back from your goals.
Above all, you are the expert on your own life and I will help you use this inner knowledge to bring about hope and healing.
While traveling the country as a Military wife, I had the privilege to work with diverse populations from inner city Tacoma, WA to rural Georgia. The majority of my work has been in serving Military personnel and their families.
I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from St. Martin’s University in Olympia, WA and a Bachelor’s of Science in Human Development from Warner Pacific College in Portland, OR.
I am trained in evidenced-based practices such as Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have also been trained in Crisis Intervention, suicide prevention, Military-focused couples counseling and domestic violence counseling.
My Personal Life
I am very excited to be home in the Northwest after traveling around the country for 5 years while my husband served in the Army.
My husband, daughter, and I love going on hikes in the mountains, watching movies, helping out at our church and visiting the zoo.
