About Me

I am a big-hearted, passionate, down-to-earth Christian therapist who genuinely believes in the skills that I teach. I love my career because I have the privilege to support you on your spiritual journey through this unpredictable game of life...what an honor! My therapy style weaves a unique combination of skill-building, support, humor, and firmness to help you snap out of simply "existing" in order to start truly living again. Let me help you get out of your suffering so you can begin to build a life worth living!
I specialize in the treatment of adults and families affected by trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and related issues. My main treatment modalities are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), but I have also received specialized training in multiple other evidence-based treatment options.
I have over 16 years of experience providing individual, couples, and group therapy to veterans through the Veterans Administration. My work specializes in mood and adjustment issues that veterans and their loved ones typically encounter. As a life-long Christian, I find that my strong spiritual faith combined with my clinical knowledge and experience helps me genuinely connect with clients seeking therapy.
