NOTICE TO POTENTIAL NEW CLIENTS: As of May 10, 2022 I do not have any availability for new clients and I currently have several individuals on my wait list. I anticipate not having any availability for new clients until at least January 2023. If you are interested in possibly being put on my wait list, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Also, please note I am in process of training my Golden Retriever, Tucker, to be a therapy dog. As you can see from the picture below, he is great at snuggling! If/when he passes all of his classes and his final evaluation, there will likely be times when Tucker is in the office with clients. Part of his training will include orienting him to my office without clients present. If you have any allergies to dogs, I may not be the best fit for you – Golden Retrievers shed like crazy! For those of you who are looking forward to “Tucker time”, don’t worry – I will keep a lint brush on hand to remove any evidence of your pet therapy.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the constantly changing COVID-19 situation, I have created a webpage entitled “COVID Response” that includes my response to this situation, special instructions for clients, and additional resources. CLICK HERE to be directed to that webpage.
Taking your first step to get counseling can be difficult, and I would love to walk you through this process of personal growth! We all have our struggles, and all I ask is that you come as you are and to be willing to face the things in your life that are holding you back.
Finding a Counselor you trust is of utmost importance. As a Christian Counselor I aim to provide a non-judgmental environment while encouraging and challenging you to grow and achieve your goals. I am a National Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor who provides individual counseling for women ages 18 and older. While I work with a variety of mental health issues, I specialize and am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, which is one of the most effective treatments for trauma and/or PTSD. It is also very effective in treating disturbing memories, phobias, panic attacks, anxiety disorders, stress, sexual and physical abuse, complicated grief.
