I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who graduated from ASU in 2013. I have training in ACT Therapy, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gottman Couple's Therapy, and EMDR. I am a trauma therapist who is currently seeking EMDRIA certification for EMDR which means that I've had advanced training and additional supervision to ensure that I'm providing the best care.
I worked for 7 years in the child welfare system working with families, individuals, and children. As I result I was exposed to a variation of trauma and human experiences. I have experience working with domestic violence, substance abuse, various forms of abuse, and parenting skills assistance. I worked in the private practice field for 2.5 years before deciding to venture out on my own.
My goals for my clients are for them to feel safe, seen, and heard. I have a relaxed style, and enjoy teaching clients new skills. I am a big fan of using EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and experiential therapy. I believe whole heartedly in the mind, body, spirit connection and I love implementing holistic principals if it's a good fit for the client. I am also a safe place for LBGTQ community and the BIPOC community.
I provide marriage counseling as well as counseling for individuals, teens, and families. I enjoy helping people with anxiety, grief and loss, stress management and life changes, trauma, improving self esteem and happiness, improving communication, learning to have healthy relationships, and co-parenting.
I am an undercover nerd. I enjoy learning new things and I'm always reading at least 3 books at a time. Working out and being in nature are some of the activities which help to level me out in these crazy times we are living in. I have 2 little girls who think I'm their hero, and a husband who is along for the journey of life. I've had my own struggles with addiction, both personally and in a family context; as a result, I'm super familiar with 12 step recovery process. My favorite color is turquoise, and I love Vans shoes.
Personal transformation is not easy. Healing yourself takes time. Letting go can sometimes feel overwhelming. Building new habits can seem like an uphill battle. Even with all of these challenges, inner-work is worth it. This active form of self love can radically change your life.
