Therapist, Advocate, Army Combat Veteran, Mother, Divorcee, Survivor

Ohhhh man....what do you actually write in this part?  Like what parts of me do I share, knowing it's like a permanent stamp in cyberspace?   

Here are a few key things that you may want to know: 

  • I serve on the Board of Directors for a few amazing organizations because they value my input and expertise

  • I think relationship is an undervalued concept in society today so I make it a priority with my clients; therapy won't work unless a trusting relationship is created and nurtured

  • I love working with rascally kids and admittedly have more patience with them than I do my own sometimes

  • I am a Christian and I am a licensed counselor but I am not a Christian counselor

  • I am kinda classy and kinda country and I cuss a little

  • I have combat related PTSD and played rugby for a while to help manage the symptoms; that didn't work-therapy did and still does

  • I really like working with clients who do not believe in the power or purpose of therapy

  • I am not for everyone-my energy is not meant for everyone so understand I keep a small caseload of clients who are actively motivated to see change in their lives and are willing to invest in themselves to make it happen.
