My career began by backpacking through the local Idaho desert with teens in residential Wilderness Therapy. Seeking more skills and tools to help people heal and grow, I obtained a master’s in counseling from Gonzaga University followed by an LPC license in Idaho state. I have experience working with differing outpatient populations, from ages 5 to 71. I have found my passion in working with adults in all stages of life.
I use approaches based in person-centered, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused, and reality therapies. I strive to help these individuals gain insight and practice new skills around how they relate to themselves, to other people, and to the circumstances in their life with a sense of hope and empowered choice.
I am a Washington native who recently moved to Boise with my Idaho born-and-raised husband. I enjoy running, hiking, cooking, and connecting with friends and family.
