About My Clients

I work best with couples wanting to improve their relationship as well as individuals wanting to improve their lives and need a trusted guide to help in the process. My office is a place of comfort from a crazy hectic world. I value listening and reflecting and will provide you what you need to work through your circumstances. Our work together is a collaboration. You know you the best. I am here to offer support and comfort while we explore your world together.

My Background and Approach

I hold a Master's of Counseling and supervise counselor's in training. I worked as an Adjunct professor for MidAmerica Nazarene University but found I prefer working with patients the most. I provide a comfortable place for us to explore the dynamics of your world. I am a level II Certified Gottman Therapist and a Certified Play Therapist. I have certifications and have learned directly from Dr.'s John and Julie Gottman, Dr. Sue Johnson and Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk to name a few. I am a lifelong learning always learning from my patient's or going to trainings to stay current in this ever changing and fascinating world of psychology. Whether you are a couple wanting to work on intimacy or communication I can help you. I have over a decade of experience helping couples and individuals find fulfillment and purpose in their lives. I named my practice "Thrive" because I believe we shouldn't just "survive" but we are truly meant to Thrive. I hope that we can work together soon.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in caring for people and earning their trust in a scary and often times untrusting world. In our fast paced and hectic lives we have lost the importance of being fully present with another. Being fully present with you is very important to me. I desire for you to feel heard and understood and validated. When you are unsure of something I want you to trust that I will guide you in the best way possible. I am for you and will work alongside you to help you meet the goals that we will define early on. I'm also a believer in softly challenging a patient when I feel that is needed. Therapy is too important for it to be a passive process. You pay good money for services, I work hard to make sure the process is worth it! I am passionate about therapy services and have donated thousands of dollars of therapy services over the decade of being a therapist. I would enjoy understanding you and learning more about what your counseling needs. Please call for a consultation
