I have been practicing therapy for over 25 years with my specialty focus being on Substance Use Disorders and Trauma.

I am licensed in Idaho and Oregon and my office is in Boise, Idaho. In person and tele health services are available. Due to working in the outpatient, inpatient, psychiatric hospitals, corrections and VA venues, I have experience with many types of diagnosis. The age group I work with is adolescent to geriatric. Receiving a Certification as an Addictions Counselor in 1996 allowed me to have an extensive background in this area including co-occurring disorders. Working for the Veterans Administration for over 15 years gave me a strong background in military related trauma. I am certified in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as Interpersonal Psychology. My approach is eclectic as I see each person as a unique set of circumstances. Because of my professional background, I have a direct style in my therapeutic approach that is centered in compassion.
