​​​​​​​​Thanks for visiting our site. Choosing a counselor can be a very difficult decision, this page is designed to help you to learn more about us. We hope to have the opportunity to learn more about you as well.  











I have been in the counseling field for about 15 years and have worked with adolescents, adults, groups, couples and families. I have worked with many different populations: children, adolescents, adults, veterans, individuals with substance abuse, individuals with special needs, and the dually diagnosed. I focus on understanding your perspective, to provide you with the best support in your current situation. 


I believe that the most important element in counseling is trust. The alliance between the client and clinician is paramount to a successful relationship. Each party in the therapeutic alliance has an important role. I need to be trustworthy, honest, supportive, caring, experienced, and at times challenging. The client needs to be honest with me (and themselves) about how they feel. I believe that with my experience, I can provide a space that allows for this healthy therapeutic alliance to grow. In addition, with a personal training background, I am able to draw connections between emotional health and physical health. When not at work or spending time with my family, I enjoy running and reading. 











It is important to feel like someone understands what you are going through and is there to help. I have been in the counseling field for over 10 years and have worked with a wide range of clients and issues. I have experience with children, adolescents, adults, couples, families and groups. I have worked with people experiencing many different life struggles and have a speciality with anxiety. I have also worked with those experiencing depression, grief and loss, substance abuse issues and work and relationship problems.  I also have a great deal of experience dealing with parenting issues, helping children and families with special needs, and educational problems with children.  


As each person is different, I focus on incorporating creative treatment methods and alternative therapies. I am member of the Association of Creativity and Counseling through the American Counseling Association. I also understand that people need trust and communication, feeling like someone understands and is working with you to tackle the challenges life is giving you. Having the right support makes a difference. I can help. My aim is to provide an open and supportive environment where we share a collaborative goal of working together to help you obtain clarity and resolution.

​​The decision to start therapy can feel intimidating but can also lead to profound growth and benefits that can impact all aspects of your life. Choosing the right therapist is the first step in this process. It is essential to find someone who you feel you can trust and who provides you with the level of understanding and support you need. One of my goals as a therapist is to create a safe and collaborative environment in which you can explore and make meaning of a variety of life experiences and challenges.


I am an independent contractor at Prairie Wellness Counseling Center. I'm skilled in working with adults, adolescents, children, couples and families, and in running group counseling. Everyone is different and this is the lens through which I view therapy; we work together to determine the best approach for you.


My expertise covers a range of issues including symptoms related to anxiety, depression, relational challenges and anger management. I focus on traditional talk therapy but also incorporate techniques tailored to helping you reach your personal goals.

Having a safe, supportive place to voice thoughts and concerns is the basis of our therapeutic process. I want to start your journey towards wellness where you are ready in a way that encourages collaboration towards your personal goals. I offer an individually tailored and direct, genuine human approach with the empathy and compassion to help clients find the courage to adapt and work through personal changes. After establishing a strong therapeutic relationship based in trust and understanding, I want to help shine a light on places that may have felt dark or ignored in your life.
