I've been a member of veteran and first responder communities for over 20 years and I specialize in working with those populations, including those struggling with chronic illnesses and rehabilitative medicine. Prior to counseling, I also served for fifteen years as an educator and developed a passion for helping adolescents and young adults to navigate their pathways to adulthood. As unique individuals, we benefit most from unique treatment plans, designed to fit our specific needs and goals. I utilize several neuroscience-informed counseling methods, including mindfulness exercises, neuroeducation and EMDR. I believe strongly in the power of animal assisted therapy, and I have a therapy dog to comfort my clients whenever desired. It is a privilege to walk with my clients on their journey toward growth and wholeness, and my first priority is to establish a safe and secure space in which to conduct those explorations. I want them to feel comfortable with me and to feel heard and understood while we take this path together.
