Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I specialize in helping others find their way out of the dark places that accompany addiction and trauma. I work with adults, teens, couples, and families.
My style is very person-centered, empathetic, and compassion-centered, meaning I will meet you where you are in your desire to heal. I will come alongside you to focus on making changes and a connection that will impact you long after a session. The opposite of addiction is connection; learning how to connect with yourself and others is an important step in the recovery process. I want to help you find your smile again.
I grew up an only child in a small town in Oklahoma. I was raised in a family ravaged by the disease of addiction. Always longing for more, I joined the Air Force to have a different experience in life. At age 19, I moved away and had my own family. I am a mother to 3 world-changing women and ‘Nonnie’ to five beautiful grandchildren. With a Master’s in Public Administration, I have worked in several leadership positions but found my calling when I stepped into substance use treatment. I have worked in residential treatment and outpatient care and now bring my experience with managing crisis and recovery into my 1:1 offerings.
When I am not working with clients, I enjoy spending quiet time in my garden, training my service dog, and thrifting. I also enjoy yoga, meditation, and exploring nature. I am a student of life, and a lover of art, music, and beauty. I love to walk barefoot in the grass and gaze at the stars; I have learned to appreciate the little things in life.
