Areas of Expertise

Eating Disorders

I work with clients struggling with eating disorders to identify patterns and triggers that lead to eating disorder behaviors, develop coping skills to manage anxiety. Stabilizing food intake is essential and often encourage my clients to work with a nutritionist as well as their primary care physician as this recovery involved the mind and body.  

Trauma Therapy

I have specialized training in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is a brief therapy that uses eye movements to treat PTSD, depression, anxiety by disrupting the distress response triggered by certain memories or experiences. 

Premarital Counseling

I use Prepare-Enrich premarital counseling with clients who are considering marriage. Couples take an individual assessment to look at strength and growth areas in their relationship, and then we use that assessment to talk through ways we can make your relationship stronger after marriage.

Other concerns

I also work with clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions and attachment trauma/wounds

About me

I love stories. Therapy is a lot like reading a book, you have a vague idea of what to expect from the name and introduction, but the more you read the more the story comes together. There are highs and lows, and sometimes things can be a bit unexpected. This is what I love about being a therapist. I get to help my clients as they put together their story. The highs are happier and the lows are more manageable when we can share them with someone. 

I primarily use tools from emotionally focused therapy, person centered therapy, accelerated resolution therapy (ART), and cognitive behavioral therapy when working with clients addressing trauma anxiety, depression, eating disorders/disordered eating, and life transitions.

I received my Master of Arts Degree in Professional Counseling from Cornerstone University. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language and History from Central Michigan University. 

I have advanced training in emotionally focused therapy and accelerated resolution therapy. 

I am a member of the American Counseling Association and the International Center of Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
