About Me

I want to gain a good understanding of who you are, where you come from, and where you want to go. It can be intimidating to tell your story and put your trust in a therapist and it is my goal to provide full support and acceptance with every single client.  It is essential to develop a good working relationship with a therapist you feel comfortable with.

I am a culturally sensitive, person-centered counselor.  I respect you, your life, and your ability to make your own decisions.

I have worked in the helping profession for the last 10 years. Along with my license as a Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), I am licensed as a Master’s Addictions Counselor (LMAC) and pursuing my doctoral degree in Counselor Education and Supervision at Kansas State University.  I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC).

My Treatment Approach

I work on enhancing motivations and values to help you find solutions.  I have extensive experience in several different types of cognitive therapies (CBT, REBT, DBT), Motivational Interviewing and Behavioral Interventions.
