Are you feeling stuck? Desperate? Alone? I would be honored to work with you on finding a way out of the muck. For most of my life, I've been that person friends go to when they need to talk something through, and nothing makes me feel more fulfilled than to be able to listen with my whole heart and offer another perspective to help people find their own strengths and solutions. I have worked for more than twenty years as a criminal justice researcher, and I went back to school for a master's in counseling to fulfill this calling I have always sensed.

Mission: Transforming lives by connecting people to their own strengths and futures through an environment of caring and trust

Vision: People are unstuck and taking actions in line with their values so that they can lead rich, meaningful lives

More Info About My Practice

My office is located in a church, which I know may be a comfort to some people and a concern for others. Please know that you don't have to be a member of the church, a Christian, or believe anything in particular to work with me. If spirituality is important to you and you want to include that in counseling, I'm open to that, but it's certainly not required.

I also offer distance counseling using a secure video platform for clients located within the state of New Mexico.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

In my training, there were always long forms for clients to fill out with all kinds of background information. Now that I'm running my own practice, as I thought about what my background form might look like, I realized that it would feel overwhelming to answer so many questions (some of which are pretty sensitive). So I prefer to have you tell me what brings you to counseling, what's going well (or has gone well in the past), and what kind of support you have. Lots of background details tend to come out in the telling of your story, and I can ask other questions along the way, depending on what's relevant. I'll also ask questions to make sure you and your loved ones are safe.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Although every struggle is different, and I wouldn't presume to know what you're going through, I've dealt with issues of my own that counseling helped with. An analogy I have found helpful is that you are over there climbing your mountain, and I'm over here climbing mine, but from where I am, I can see things that you can't. And that difference in perspective can be helpful. I'm not an expert in your problems, but I can offer empathy, a listening ear, and strategies to try out based on my personal experience, professional experience, and education.
