I am a Licensed National Board Certified Counselor (NCC) and am certified in tele-mental health (TMHC). I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado, where I earned a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have experience in individual counseling and group counseling, training in leading emotional healing groups, involvement as an emotional helper among the community, and many years as a volunteer in the greater community working with children and disaster relief. My special interests include: women’s issues, spiritual wounding, depression, complicated grief, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, mind control, cult/high demand group recovery and identity issues.
My passion is to BE the person for others that I once needed when going through difficult times. I have tremendous compassion for those who suffer. In a counseling session, I use a relational style of therapy to understand your issues from your perspective and provide options for gentle trauma work (EMDR).
I believe that we are more alike than we are different — especially in our emotional pain. My desire and hope is to help my clients find meaning, discover answers as to why they are who they are today, decipher who they would like to be, and align the future with their personal values.

About the Logo
A vessel at sea looks to the lighthouse during times of danger and turmoil in order to gather its bearings. The light helps to guide the crew and passengers by providing direction through treacherous waters. The logo has a dark, rugged and potentially dangerous terrain. The brick and mortar represents structure, safety, and protection. The past can be dark and confusing. Shining a light into our past can help us find meaning, offer answers into why we are who we are today, help us discover who we would like to be and determine where we would like to go in the future. There is hope in the future as the sun shines down on a new day. Strategically, the sun is beginning to set over what others have prescribed for your life. The parameters of tomorrow are slightly undefined, with a hint of the unknown and adventure. The birds are free to pursue, narrate and navigate their path into tomorrow and beyond.
