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.
Do difficulty events in your past (sexual experiences, war-related, or other types of traumas) continue to trouble you, making it hard for you to be fully present in your life today? Do you have troubled relationships with your spouse, significant others, or other family members? Are you looking for a counselor that honors your religious beliefs? Are you a veteran or part of a military family struggling with the difficulties of military family life? Or maybe you're a professional looking for someone to come alongside you as a supervisor? I specialize in these areas and provide services online in more than 30 states.
As a psychologist board certified in Couple and Family Psychology as well as an independently licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have extensive background and training in working with families and couples. I'm certified in Hope-Focused Couples' Therapy and PREPARE/ENRICH forms of couples therapy, but also have training in some other types of therapy. I am an Army veteran (former mental health specialist) who works with military and veteran families, including working with a family during a military deployment depending on the circumstances. I have a certification in Cogntiive Processing Therapy for PTSD, which is also relevant to sexual and other forms of trauma, and I have used it to treat these forms as well. I also work well with people whose faith is foundational and want a therapist that sees their faith as an important asset to respect. I work from home currently doing telehealth so I work on evenings and weekends to suit your schedule. As part of PsyPact, I currently offer online therapy in 31 states at this time, so it's likely that I could provide services in your area. Finally, I also offer MFT and psychologist supervision.
