About

As every individual, couple & family history is unique. I desire to assist you in maximizing your skills while utilizing proven research to meet your desired needs in light of your specific situation. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC).

I have extensive experience in assisting individuals meet personal objectives. I incorporate current / past issues when they interfere with your current goals, designed to enable your current strengths with a wellness perspective.

I am retired military with 23 years active duty service. I provide counseling with different branches of the military & families from Gowen Field and Mountain Home AFB, where I understand the diverse stressors involved. I have 5 children & 3 grandchildren from my Navy son-in-law & daughter. I personally understand family difficulties due to the military environment.

I also understand typical family stressors where daily life worries can make things complicated. It can be overwhelming with additional sources of difficulties that may involve chronic pain, PTSD, trauma, addictions, etc. Blended families with children involved have unique stressors. Children and extended families of different ages and backgrounds present unique types of challenges & opportunities. I am available to assist you.

My unique approach comes from being dual licensed as both a Licensed Associate Marriage & Family Therapist (LAMFT) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I blend your individual goals with proven researched approaches, designed to meet your desired results.

I specialize in addictions, grief, trauma and crisis, depression and anxiety, relationship issues, anger and resentment, and how these internal areas interfere with relationships. I am EMDR & Theophostics trained.

If you’d like, I’m available to first meet with you where you can ask any questions.
