“Always remember: You are Braver than you believe, Stronger than you seem, Smarter than you think, and Loved more than you know.”
I bring a fierce belief in the individual strength of spirit into my sessions. With focus on safety, self-compassion, and honesty, I support clients in their journey toward health and healing.
Through trauma-informed counseling, I shine a light in the darkness for those with whom I work. As an experienced LifeStar veteran, I understand the inner battles that can rage and the victories achievable through healing from betrayal trauma and out-of-control sexual behavior.
I believe that honesty and accountability have healing properties that cannot be underestimated and that everyone can find that healing. I work to teach my clients to trust themselves again and that the answers they seek come from within. I have been involved with the Heart of a Woman retreat for years and sees the power in connection, laughter, and adventure.
I work with betrayal trauma, out-of-control behaviors, addictions, anxiety, depression, grief, bereavement, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder/complex post-traumatic stress disorder, religious trauma, faith transition, LGBTQ+, sex-abuse, relational distress, attachment issues, emotional regulation, stress management, mindfulness, self-compassion.
I am a National Certified Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), Certified Clinical Partner Specialist (CCPS) through APSATS, a member of LGBTQ Affirmative Therapists Guild of Utah, and am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma work.
