Profile
“Raised in a southern, military family (my dad was in the Air Force his entire career), I understand the importance of role definition, responsibility, accountability, and showing respect to others.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
When we were asked what we wanted to be in sixth grade, I answered, "A psychiatrist." I was raised in a military family dedicated to the helping professions. Once I realized that medical school was not my focus, I decided on counseling and therapy work and I LOVE what I do! I have worked in outpatient, residential, hospital, in-home, and online services. I am working toward EMDRIA certification and maintain my status as a CCTP. I also spent a decade as an EAGALA-certified mental health professional, providing equine therapy to adults and children.
What should someone know about working with you?
I have had the privilege of completing more than 160 hours of mindfulness training with Jon Kabat-Zinn, the "grandfather" of mindfulness in the US. The training is ongoing, and I incorporate mindfulness techniques in all my services if the client is agreeable.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I strongly believe in the importance of continuing education. I plan on completing EMDRIA certification, mindfulness training, and courses for trauma, DBT, anxiety treatment, and ethics and cultural competency. I maintain a list of professional peers who provide additional services and refer clients when I cannot meet their needs. I enjoy collaboration and consultation to provide a deeper therapeutic understanding of each client's needs and improve my skills as a counselor and therapist.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
Raised in a southern, military family (my dad was in the Air Force his entire career), I understand the importance of role definition, responsibility, accountability, and showing respect to others. As a mind-body wellness practitioner, I also understand the importance of honoring messages from our bodies, learning to adjust our expectations of self due to life changes, and maintaining a mindful approach to life. I tend to be more direct in my approach, as I truly believe this expedites the healing process. My goal is to help clients as quickly as possible but at their own pace so they no longer need my services. Having pets and practicing self-compassion are integral themes in my approach.
