About me

I am a professional counselor, licensed in the state of Idaho and has been in the mental health field for the past 10 years, starting as a community based specialist, working my way up to counselor. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with an emphasis in trauma in 2019. I was hired as a addiction counselor for an outpatient program right after I got my license and found I am passionate to help people into recovery. My style is casual and welcoming with the ability to help my clients feel comfortable with therapy. I am a natural with cognitive behavioral therapy, and I include other techniques such as mindfulness, acceptance theory, solution focused, person centered, and motivational interviewing.

I was transplanted into the Northwest as a young girl in a small community in Eastren Oregon. The closest big city to us was Boise Idaho. After I graduated with my bachlor degree form Eastren Oregon University, I decided to settle in Nampa Idaho in 2012. Summer of 2023 I decided to relocate to West Virginia but I continue to work with the people of Idaho through BetterHelp. I do my best to stay informed in what is happening in the state because of my clients as well as the fact that I also have people I care about personally still there.

I am a mother of two boys that have mental health diagnosis and there are many people in my life that struggle with mental health. It is through my personal experiences and relationships that has helped me to develop my approach to therapy. It begins with acceptance of the individual and their personal beliefs and backgrounds that make them who they are. Through compassion, and empathy, I strive to go at the speed and pace of my clients, to help them achieve their personal goals.

Making the choice to seek therapy is not easy. Together, we can develop a plan that targets your desired outcome. I am here to help you on your journey to become a better you.
