I completed my studies in Marriage and Family Counseling at Northwest Nazarene University. I have worked as a resource specialist, teacher, and small claims mediator. I am a wife, mother, and step-mom with 6 children ages 14 to 40. I work with students, professionals and groups to teach and problem solve and uncover new areas of positive engagement. Sometimes people get stuck in what they are doing. We tend to do the same things looking for different results. I enjoy working with people to help them clarify their goals and move forward with plans to help achieve what they are after.
I have a particular interest in helping people regain relationships. With couples it is incorporating the past and the future. Today's families are complicated; navigating step families, parent child, couple's and in-law relationships are not things they teach us in school. Knowledgeable support can be key.
My approach to counseling is through power of choice and a realistic look at strengths and options. I believe you are the expert of your own life and with clarity more options are available to you. Sometimes programing and trauma from the past keep us stuck. Brainspotting Therapy can offer real healing on all three levels of cognitive/emotional/somatic.
