I am a licensed professional counselor and registered play therapist providing

individual counseling to children, adolescents, and women.

I also provide family counseling as well as christian counseling upon request.



I have experience working with a variety of issues including; depression, anxiety, bipolar, stress, self-esteem issues, anger, grief and loss, separation issues, divorce, panic disorders, ADHD, ODD, OCD, behavioral problems, social skills, learning disabilities, school issues, childhood sexual and physical abuse, childhood neglect, self-injuring behaviors, trauma, and PTSD. I have had great success in helping children overcome anxiety including separation anxiety, school phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder.


I earned a Masters in Mental Health from Campbell University and a Bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University. I was a public school teacher for more than 10 years before becoming a counselor. In addition to private practice I have experience working with diverse populations in a community mental health agency.

Building Relationships

I believe in building a strong therapeutic alliance and relationship with my clients. We will develop mutually agreed upon goals to work towards in our sessions together. We can discuss treatment options and types of therapy available at your first session, and help determine what you need. However some types of therapy I offer are; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), sand tray therapy, and Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT). For children I offer sand tray therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, animal assisted therapy, and various play therapy models. In family counseling I enjoy improving positive communication between family members and members accomplishing small fun tasks within the therapeutic setting. I believe families need to have small successes together to face the bigger obstacles in life with greater confidence. Christian Counseling is available upon request of the client.

Training

I attend several professional developments multiple times a year to keep up to date on current research and methods in the counseling field.
