EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I believe the therapy process is one of self-exploration and growth and learning new tools to assist us on our path. Since we cannot heal what we cannot see, understanding our painful experiences and hurt with compassion can help us find our inner strengths and wisdom. My approach in therapy is to create a nonjudgmental and compassionate environment allowing you the open space to explore your inner world. I believe in a holistic approach and the importance of honoring your unique combination of emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual experiences. I focus mainly on a mindful-based approach and EMDR and I am able to include other treatment approaches in therapy. We will work together to find a treatment approach best fitting for you. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with 20 years of counseling experience. I earned my Ph.D. in Counselor Education from Ohio University in 1999 and I have completed training in EMDR. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults and have special interest in grief, trauma, life transitions, and health issues including the mind-body connection. In my free time, my favorite thing is being in nature and taking my dog for a walk. I enjoy taking a yoga class, learning new things, meditation, and spending time with my family and friends.
