Martin Luther King Jr is attributed as saying "Faith is taking the first step when you can't see the whole staircase." Sometimes taking that first step, like calling or emailing a therapist you've never met, is a bit daunting. But what might happen if you give it a try? I'm open-minded, non-judgemental and ready to hear all about what's going on with you and your family. Together we can work through your issues and discover ways to relieve your stress, guilt, anxiety, dissappoinments and discouragement in your personal life and relationships.
I use a mixture of modalities in treatment including Acceptance and Committment Therapy, Family Systems perspective and an interpersonal style that fits the needs of my clients. I have experience with marriage and family, pre marriage, men's issues, career and life transitions.
I draw on extensive experience as a non-profit executive with organizations such as Focus on the Family, Medical Teams International, Partners International and CRISTA Ministries and from personal life experience including growing up in a single parent home, raising a special needs child and being married for 31+ years

We have but one life, live it to the fullest. As a counselor for nearly 20 years, I have had the privilege of working with a diverse group of people and helping them through many issues. I have extensive background treating eating disorders, anxiety, depression, pain management, grief and loss as well as marriage, family and parenting challenges. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Clinical Supervisor in the State of Idaho. I have also held license in Washington and Colorado. As a professional career woman, wife and mother (including a special needs adult son), I am particularly in tune with issues women like me face. Sometimes the role is tough and it can wear us down. Why struggle alone? I can take the journey with you.
I am a multi-sports fanatic who loves spending time with my family and exploring the great State of Idaho.
