Online Therapy

About Me

I love helping people and all animals! I especially enjoy seeing healing after a client has shared their journey with me. I am a nature girl who lives in a log home in a patch of woods and I love feeding our deer, bunnies, raccoons and all the cats around the area. I have two sweet little dogs that I adore. I just simply want to help people heal and I love that EMDRIA gave me better skills to do so.

Education & Experience

I have a Bachelors and Master Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, Indiana. My first therapy job was helping opening a new addictions hospital in Newburgh Indiana, Brentwood Meadows. I learned a tremendous amount about addictions and how to treat it along with developing successful clinical and therapeutic skills. I am now a private practice owner of Breakthrough Counseling, Inc in Evansville, IN where I treat adults with trauma, anxiety, eating disorders and life adjustments. I utilize EMDR in 95% of my clientele with success.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I am a member of International Association of Eating Disorders since 2017.
