I practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I completed my undergraduate work at Utah State University. I then went on to achieve my master’s in counseling degree through Idaho State University (CACREP accredited), and my doctoral degree through the University of Northern Colorado (APA accredited). I also completed my pre-doctoral internship at Warm Springs Counseling Center and Training Institute in Boise, Idaho. I completed my post-doctoral training at Northwest Neurobehavioral Health.
In the past, I have worked at an inpatient unit with clients experiencing severe mental illness, children and their families in outpatient settings, participated in several settings and situations in which the goal was to increase family cohesion, happiness, and positive parenting skills. Throughout my training and experience, I have found a passion for working with children, parenting, and family interactions. I focus on my training and work in early childhood and development, parent-child interactions, and family therapy to assist in developing and providing an understanding into the child’s needs and a healthy environment for the children. I also work with adult clients struggling with anxiety disorders, developmental delays and difficulties, trauma related struggles, and emotional dysregulation.
