Do you find yourself repeating habits or activities you’ve wanted to change? Have you discovered that time doesn’t actually heal all wounds? Would you like to feel more present, authentic and connected to yourself and others?
I help create a safe space to explore these questions. I will come along side you, learn about you and the strengths you already have, and help you build a plan for recovery. I can employ many different methods to help, but ultimately the only treatment I am interested in is the one that works for you.
I practice ‘unconditional positive regard’. I think you are heroic for seeking help. I believe you hold the keys to your own recovery, and I will help you fit them to the locks that are holding you back. I will be a helper, a supporter, and a confidante.
Spirituality can be a great help to some in times of need, but it can also be a hindrance and embody judgement, guilt, and shame. I am well versed in both sides of this coin and can engage with a variety of spiritual practices. I can also exclude this aspect in therapy if desired, or help you find healing from spiritual abuse.
After over a decade in the military as an enlisted Marine and Air Force officer, I earned a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Concordia University with concentrations in Trauma and Substance Abuse. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Substance Abuse Counselor. My five kids and two cats keep me on my toes and help me juggle priorities and appreciate relationship dynamics!
