From the time I was young, I knew I wanted to help others feel listened to and understood and to help them find the answers they likely had all along.  I am humbled by the opportunity to work with those who have taken that first brave step to seek counseling.  I do not take this responsibility lightly.  I consider it a great privilege to play any part in the healing which takes place.  I believe that every person has value beyond what human eyes can see.  As a counselor, I strive to help clients find a strong sense of self and build a path to emotional resilience.

I completed my undergraduate work at Brigham Young University and am working to complete a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Grand Canyon University.  Along with my formal education I bring a passion for any psych literature I can get my hands on and I bring a fair amount of life experience as well.

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  I treasure each of these relationships but also recognize that they require time and work to make them strong and joyful.  I know what it is to see anxiety, depression, addiction and other mental challenges within these relationships.  Always there is hope, and healing follows hope.
