My Approach to Helping
It is my desire to assist those who come to see me reach their goals. Together we work to understand the values and beliefs and corresponding thoughts and opinions that create inner conflict which is impacting the ability to reach those goals.
I provide individual counseling that focuses on an understanding of life choices through exploring core beliefs and emotional experiences. Together we will experience the benefit of coping skills that will help better manage and regulate emotional experiences.
I specialize in substance abuse and trauma. It is my experience that trauma leaves a developing soul in pain. Substances abuse is a behavior used to alleviate the pain, but is a symptom of an underlying traumatic injury.
I received my Master\'s in Mental Health Counseling from Idaho State University in 2017. Before obtaining my LCPC licensure, I spent six years as a member of the United States Navy. I am passionately driven to collaborate with my patients in order to help them achieve their goals.
