Helping others on their path to healing and personal growth is a passion of mine. I am an Arizona native and a proud Wildcat. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Arizona and then my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Bowie State University while living overseas. Since 1998, I have experience living in and supporting the military community. Current and former military personnel and their loved ones experience hardships and unique issues specific to military life. Deployment, PCSing, stress and uncertainty about last minute change in orders, transitioning, retirement, isolation, parenting, and finances are just a few of the common struggles. Maybe you’ve considered seeing a civilian therapist, but aren’t sure where to start or how to choose the right person for you. I understand the unique challenges that you and your family face. These struggles are real and you are not alone.
I have experience working with adolescents and adults across a variety of settings including residential care, education, athletics and military. These opportunities have helped shape me and deepen my understanding. I specialize in recovery from addictions, unwanted behaviors, and other stress-related or quality of life issues. I am licensed as an associate counselor and working under supervision. I am trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). This treatment incorporates memory visualization techniques that are enhanced by the use of eye movements, as well as memory reconsolidation, a way in which new information is incorporated into existing memories. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist – A with an emphasis in the areas of trauma & addiction.
My style is direct, compassionate and genuine. I operate from a trauma-informed lens utilizing psychoeducation and an integrative approach to therapy, tailoring treatment according to each individual’s needs. Our work together leads you toward understanding and provides skills for relief, empowerment and well-being.
It is possible to find peace, feel more centered and rediscover your voice. I look forward to partnering with you as you move toward healing, recovery and living your best life.
