She now specializes in trauma informed counseling to individuals of all ages. Areas of focus include play therapy, couples’ therapy, adolescent therapy, anxiety, and depression.

I consider it a great privilege to be invited in on the journey of life with my clients. My goal is to meet every client where they are and walk with them as they navigate different challenges in life. I utilize a collaborative approach in which the client and I work together to set and achieve realistic and attainable goals. My Christian faith is central in my life, and I consider it an honor to be invited to share Biblical truth and wisdom in the counseling room when a client elects to do so. I have been married to my husband for 15 years and we have one child.
