About Me

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and fully certified EMDR therapist, I use an attachment theoretical orientation to blend the science of connection with the power of healing. I strive to bring compassion, warmth, and a direct yet collaborative approach to working with my clients. I frequently hears “I feel like I’m going crazy!” or “no one else is seeing this!” when talking to parents who are dealing with intense, attachment seeking behaviors. When people feel overwhelmed, numb, disconnected, hopeless, or stuck they experience a loss in happiness, pain in relationships, and a lack of productivity. Therapy is helpful with these issues in more ways than teaching coping skills. The science of connection helps people find a way to a sense of feeling "okay" -- maybe for the first time in years or for the first time, period. I believe in helping parents understand their child's need for connection while maintaining their own sanity. For all clients, work together includes strategies from trauma-informed care and neuroscience to help increase calm, reduce negative thinking and anxiety, increase health in relationships, and improve productivity in school, at work, or at home. Based on seven years of experience doing in-home therapy, plus years as an outpatient psychotherapist, I have insight and personal experience observing children’s anxiety, outbursts, and day to day struggles in both home and school settings. I have worked closely with families to navigate psychiatry appointments and IEP/504 meetings. I also works with first responders. My background as a "police wife" of 13 years brings an understanding of the struggles of wellness versus cashing out comp time, shift work, work stigma, and feelings of being broken. I am certified in the Integrative Attachment Treatment Protocol for Children (IATP-C) with the Attachment Trauma Center Institute, and is a trained IFS Level 1 therapist. In her free time, Beckie can be found drinking coffee, snuggling her German Shepherds, cats, and rabbits, snowboarding, gardening, reading, and tabletop gaming.
