There are no manuals to life, however there are people in our lives that can try to help provide guidance when things get bumpy. I am one of those people who try to provide guidance, strength, and compassion to anyone who is seeking assistance. Therapeutically, I take a holistic approach to health, wellness, and healing working with physical, psychological and social needs. I utilize a variety of different therapeutic styles to meet the client's needs to include Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavior Therapy & Case Management.
I have a background in working with youth who may struggle with juvenile justice, are foster youth, have drug and alcohol issues, special needs and mental/behavioral concerns. I have also worked with adults and families regarding many issues from addiction to mood disorders to relationship repair.
My graduate degree is in Health Psychology and bachelor's degree in Cultural Anthropology. I am a board certified Holistic Health Practitioner and Health Coach. I am also a nationally credentialed Advanced Victim Advocate and have worked extensively with victims of family violence with an emphasis on military families.
On a personal note: I am originally from rural Oregon however bounced around a few states as my husband was active duty Army. I have 4 wonderful children and a bunch of animals. I am an avid tea lover and create my own blends, so don't be surprised if you always see me with my tea cup. I look forward to working with you on your journey called life.
