Life can be filled with disappointment, stress, pain, and loss that can leave us feeling overwhelmed, alone, and vulnerable. During these times of struggle it can be difficult to find hope that things can change, improve, or ever be okay again. I am dedicated to helping those who find themselves in positions that often seem impossible to overcome. I believe an abundant, peaceful, and joy filled life is available for those who seek to change unhealthy patterns in their lives, improve their relationships, and strive to be the best versions of themselves.
I am a trained Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) trained in CBT, EMDR (Level II), Gottman Marriage Counseling, and group therapy. I have an increased desire to use my EMDR knowledge to help those in competitive fields such as athletics, the performance arts, academics, and business become the best versions of themselves. My experience in competitive sports and business has taught me the necessity of mental strength and stamina to excel. I would guide clients through their maladaptive thought processes which cause doubt, fear and anxiety that prohibits them from reaching their potential.
I have been married for 20 years and have two children. Marriage and family are both very important to me and I strive to model the principles that I teach in my own life. I am passionate about joining with those who struggle with the responsibility of juggling career and family and managing the stresses of both. Along with family, my many years of experience in business has uniquely equipped me to partner with those who face these challenges and hope to find balance in their lives.
I have a wide range of counseling experience including performance enhancement, pain management, parenting, marriage, trauma, grief, crisis, depression, anxiety, co-dependency, anger management, and addiction. I am dedicated to meeting clients where they are guiding them to find comfort in their own decisions without judgement or ridicule.
I combine faith based principles, proven psychological theories and clinical education to help my clients reach their goals for treatment. I truly believe that “the Lord is my shield, my glory, the One who lifts my head high” (Psalm 3:3), and through His wisdom and guidance I hope to help guide and mentor my clients toward a place of joy and success.
