Clinical Interests:

My clients are frequently experiencing a pivotal time of life change. They are seeking new perspectives, insights, tools, and skills. Being deeply listened to, and genuinely cared about, comes first. They want a trusted, non-judgmental, and upbeat partner who is action-oriented at their side. Common client opportunities include career changes, new relationships, enhancing health and wellbeing, and gaining clarity of personal goals. Common struggles include anxiety, stress, work/life balance, sleeping issues, relationship conflicts, loss of loved ones, trauma healing, depression, and health recovery journeys. I hold certifications in health and wellness, career planning, leadership, and emotional intelligence. I have attended numerous clinical training sessions on CBT, trauma, and insomnia.

Clinical Approach:

I help clients identify their unique strengths and get creative about more fully appreciating and utilizing those strengths. We also identify potentially limiting behaviors and thought patterns to modify. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is popular with my clients, while my clinical practice model also integrates multiple other theories and approaches customized to meet the client's unique needs.


I stay active with cabin life, traveling, hiking, outdoor concerts, and sporting events. My husband and I adore our family, which includes five young adult children, dogs, cats, and a horse.
