About Me

I am an experienced counselor who has worked with a variety of populations. I have been fortunate to work with children, teens, probation, substance abuse, LGBTQ, ADHD, depression and veterans. I have been blessed to work under some of the most knowledgable and qualified professionals. My goal is to always give 100% to my clients. I think outside the box and use different methods to engage with clients. I have four associates who are quite skilled. Ernest, a mixed breed pup of 3 years insists that he lay on the back of my chair during sessions. Ernest has brought a sense of joy and calm to many clients. Rupert is a Boxer/Great Dane mix who does not like the fact that Ernest gets all the attention. Crosby and Lucy are both small senior dogs who just want to sleep. I have used art, activities, and games during sessions with children. I am not sure how I always lose at every game (Uno, Chess, Sorry). I have a passion for Native American issues in particular Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. I recently joined an organization that is searching for the truth behind residential boarding schools. I am a descendent of a survivor and feel that this needs to be addressed.


FAQs

I had a client who did not feel worthy of anything. She was struggling with her sobriety and her marriage was in trouble. She was about as low as a person could be. She has worked hard on herself. She is one year sober, and about to start paramedic school. She no longer accepts others treating her bad. She believes and knows she deserves better. She did the work, I was just there for the ride.

I would say that first off we will talk about how they are doing. What is their mood, how was their week, any positives, any negatives. What do they need to work on or discuss in the session. What do we need to work on together? What are they doing for self-care? How are they working toward their goals? What do we need to stay focused on or do different.

I always start by introducing myself. I ask the client how they are doing, and then what brings them to counseling. We discuss if they have been in counseling before and how that went for them. What do they want to work on in counseling. I will discuss confidentiality. I always tell the client that I am straight forward in sessions. I will discuss with the client what the focus will be.

I became depressed in college. I went to a community counseling center for therapy. The counselor remarked right off the bat, “I can see why you are depressed, you are fat.” It was soul crushing and I left feeling 100% worse. I have no idea why you would say that to anyone much less someone who is already depressed. I did not go back there again. The person who shows up for therapy has made a choice. They have made a choice to be vulnerable, and share things with someone they don’t know. I want to provide a safe place for them to do so.

Highlights

    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

  • Compassion and empathy
  • Resources
  • Suggestions but not advice
  • Straight talk
  • What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I utilize evidence-based therapies, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing

    Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

    My biggest strength is my strong desire to help others. I was blessed to work at a girls’ home after college. This had a positive impact on me. I try to be non-judgmental and open in sessions.
