I believe taking the step to reach out and ask for help is the bravest thing we may ever do. As we unpack the shame, anxiety, anger, trauma, and depression together, you will learn tools for living authentically; transforming the way you love, live, lead, and parent. I feel honored to take part in your healing and to have clients trust me with their stories. We all need to be heard and to belong.
While I have 12 years of experience as a therapist, I continue to actively seek out opportunities for specialized certifications and higher learning. I want to show up for you. As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) through IITAP, I work with partners with betrayal trauma and those with sex and pornography addiction. I am a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CDWF) based on the research of Brené Brown and I am approved to work with individuals and groups facilitating her curricula: Daring Greatly™, Rising Strong™, The Gifts of Imperfection™, and BOLD™ (Teens). Further information is available at brenebrown.com. I am trained to work with individuals using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), a proven modality used for PTSD and trauma. I became a Supervisor (in 2015) and then Clinical Director (2023) at Family Strategies Counseling Center.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband and our six great kids! While five of our adult children are spread out all over the world (Alaska, Hawaii, Tennessee, Oregon, and Utah), we still have our youngest at home. We love any time we can get with each of them. My self-care favorites are traveling with my husband, seeing movies when they come out, hiking, scuba diving, sharing good travel deals, and anything water or beach related.

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.” – Pema Chödrön
