Training Background

I graduated from the University of Missouri with a Master’s in Education (M.Ed.) in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Rehabilitation Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC).


Approach to Therapy

I have an eclectic therapeutic orientation and often use Mindfulness Practice, EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, The Nurtured Heart Approach, and Reality Therapy. I feel it is important to view each individual from his or her unique cultural experience with a nonjudgmental stance. I use a holistic approach and often work from the biopsychosocial model to address the systemic nature of health and functioning. I enjoy positive psychology and prefer to focus less on pathology and more on solutions, strengths, and assets.
