I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 9 years experience. My bachelors degree is in professional child and family development. I have worked with a wide range of clients and concerns. From relationship, to parenting problems, to foster care, bonding, high risk youth, trauma, loss, self-esteem, crisis management, to anxiety, work related issues, self harm, domestic violence, financial concerns animal assisted therapy.
I am often described as caring, accepting, passionate and knowledgeable. I believe in building rapport with client is an essential key to opening up the lines of communication. I am a highly empathetic person who works hard to help others get to a better place. I believe that everyone has the right to find happiness. I love working with animals as well and in my private practice I usually have my therapy dog or one of my animals from our therapeutic ranch available for client support. I am a open and honest person and clients typically find that makes it easy to trust our relationship.
I live in a small community which has allowed me to wear many hats. I actively serve on our community Volunteer Fire Department as a Fire Fighter, but mostly as a Licensed EMT. I truly enjoy helping people in their moments of need.
I am excited to get to meet you and help you along your journey!

She’s the best! Very easy to connect with. Doesn’t feel so much like the stereotypical therapy and more of a conversation where she shares a bit about herself and her experiences as well.
