Bachelor of Business Management, Indiana Wesleyan University,

My role is to encourage and promote healing to individuals who have experienced/witnessed traumatic events, or those who are experiencing life’s various stressors. My primary expertise is with children, teenagers, women and families, in helping them to develop healthy perceptions of themselves, which will lead to healthier relationships and connections in life.
Through the use of various therapeutic models, I provide guidance and support to my clients that will best meet their individual needs; I meet the client in whatever stage of life they are currently in, and partner with them on their journey of healing, growth and recovery. The goal is to help with the exploration of feelings, develop healthy coping skills, and move forward in life with the necessary tools obtained during therapy.
Some areas I work in with children and teens are anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, behavioral issues, school underachievement, body image, grief, major life transitions (divorce, marriage, blending families, loss, moving, new siblings). I can also provide parenting session for parents looking for guidance and support on best ways to help their child or teen overcome challenges they may be facing.
My education and background include a MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from Campbellsville University, in Campbellsville, KY. I have a BS in Business Management from Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion, In. and have over 15 years of experience working with children and families.
I strive to create a meaningful relationship that will provide my clients with the positive reinforcement that they need, in order to experience the fullness of life.
In my personal life I enjoy spending my time with friends and family, traveling, gardening, and cooking.
