My Story

Growing up in a small town that had limited resources, including limited mental health resources, provided my first thoughts around becoming a therapist. I knew I enjoyed supporting people around me and found myself looking up ways to translate that into a career during my senior year in high school. This led me to pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and beginning my work in mental health care administration. This allowed me to come alongside those who were looking to find services that would support them or their loved ones. After working in that field it seemed like a natural transition to become a therapist. I received a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. That experience allowed me to explore the impact and necessity of relationships in our lives. I believe that humans are not meant to go through life without support. I am hopeful to be able to provide meaningful support to those who come into my office.

Police Officer and First Responder Wellness

“Support for first responder safety and wellness is vital to the field and community, as well as the well-being of their colleagues, agencies, and families.”

Family-Based Counseling

Family-Based Therapy (FBT) is a therapeutic approach that focuses on addressing and resolving psychological and emotional issues within the context of the family unit. It is widely used to treat various mental health and behavioral problems, and its effectiveness has made it a popular choice for families seeking help and support.

Mindfully Healing clinicians are now offering video telehealth therapy services to both new and established clients.

Counseling for New Mothers

For new moms, it can be upsetting and frightening to have feelings about motherhood that don’t seem “right.” For some women, a morning run, a healthy diet and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient enough to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with new motherhood issues can be comforting, relieving and enlightening. Therapists who have extensive education and training in post-partum disorders understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are all vital factors in understanding and alleviating postpartum symptoms.

Professional Experience

As a therapist, I am passionate about my work. It is a great privilege to be able to sit with people and hear their stories. I believe the therapy room should be a safe space that allows us to explore ourselves and our lives as we find our way closer to healing.

I enjoy working with couples and families in issues related to divorce, conflict, blended families, communication issues as well as premarital counseling. Additionally I enjoy working with children, adolescents and adults with issues related to anxiety, life transitions, family of origin trauma, relationships issues and self-esteem related issues.

I have further training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Discernment Counseling and Post-Induction Therapy. Additionally, I utilize Attachment Theory, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Gottman Method, Structural Family Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy. I understand that approaches are not one size fits all so I work to find an approach that works for each individual client.

Therapy for Depression

Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self? You might be feeling depressed or deep despair.

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Family Rate: $200 per session

Why Private Pay is Beneficial for Some Clients?
  • Insurance does not cover relational difficulties such as couples and family therapy, they require a DSM-V diagnosis for one of the members. As a fee-for-service provider, I do not have to give you a mental health diagnosis.
  • Mental health diagnoses can follow you and be documented on health records and can result in affecting life insurance applications, health insurance applications and other benefits or services.
  • Together, we can determine how many times we meet instead of the insurance company making that decision.
  • Since a treatment plan, notes and billing information are not being released to an insurance company, a greater amount of confidentiality is in place for you.
