As a certified grief and trauma counselor, I help individuals and families identify, address, and move forward from adverse events in their lives through individualized counseling sessions.
For nearly two decades, I have been helping people regain balance in their lives through individualized counseling sessions and holistic therapy. Working closely with individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma reactions due to combat, sexual assault, accidents and other life changing experiences, I have helped them reestablish their independence and move forward with their personal goals.
I work with people to understand their intense emotions and move through their pain. Providing insight and resources customized to the individual to embrace their feelings, finding peace and balance for their future.
|For 15 years, I built my career providing individuals
and families counseling through the federal
government. So why leave a stable
I have found there are a lot more people out there who
hurt and aren’t getting to enjoy their lives because they
don’t know who to talk to or are afraid to ask for help.
As a volunteer with Hospice Care and Camp Nabe, I’ve
been able to help provide resolution to those whose
lives are dictated by intense emotions. I know I can
help more people move past the negative events in
their lives through private practice. How? By expanding
the understanding of the mind/body connection and
role mental health plays in our physical health.
To help me keep balance in my personal life; I practice
yoga for clarity and flexibility, run to maintain heart
health, and participate in kettlebell classes to maintain
strength. To grow my family, we welcomed a three-
legged rescue dog and overly affectionate cat. Both are
now certified therapy animals.
Let me help you regain your happiness too.
