Licensed Associate Counselor

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me online. While it is not the same as meeting in person, I would love for you to know a bit about me in hopes that it would ease your search for a therapist. I pursued this profession for a number of reasons, including my personal journey of health and healing where I grew to love the therapeutic process as a client. Now, I love the therapeutic process as a clinician, and it has been one of the greatest privileges of my life to journey alongside my clients in their highs, lows and anything in between. My clinical lens is integrative and holistic, prioritizing compassion and empathy. I love the uniqueness of each client and desire everyone to feel safe and heard in therapy, especially since therapy is a sacred, vulnerable space. I welcome clients of all backgrounds and life stages, and work with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families. My session times range from 50 minutes to 2 hours, and I am open to scheduling mini intensive sessions for couples and families ranging from 2 to 4 hours.

For me, clinical holism speaks to the comprehensive personhood of every client and includes key components: biological, psychological, social, and spiritual. Together we would explore those components of who you are. It is your journey, and I would be with you in the process of discovery and healing. Oftentimes this may include a managed care approach where I communicate with your existing support, including doctors, but only if you desire such.

Technically speaking, I integrate a variety of psychological approaches including sensorimotor psychotherapy, PACT (psychological approach to couples therapy), EMDR, attachment theory, IFS, CBT, psychodynamic theory, and psychodrama. All of these approaches blend to include the body, mind and emotions for increased awareness and to regulate the nervous system.

Some of my specialities include anxiety, depression, PTSD, C-PTSD, general trauma, relationship issues, chronic pain/illness, grief/loss, emotional regulation, and faith integration.

My academic and training background includes:

  • Texas A&M University, B.A.
  • DePaul University, M.A.
  • Phoenix Seminary, M.A.C.
  • Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (Chile), Cultural Immersion
  • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Level 1
  • PACT, Level 1
  • IFS training
  • CBT training
  • EMDR classes
  • Supporting Gifted and Talented Students, training and classes
  • Co-presenter at CAPS Conference 2019

I would love to hear from you and welcome any questions you may have! Please email me to ask about scheduling and availability.
