I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in private practice serving adults, teens, couples, and families. I’m based in Boise, Idaho, although I’m available for online and phone therapy for people living in any part of Idaho or New Hampshire, where I am also a licensed therapist.
My approach is rooted in acceptance, empathy, and authenticity. I provide an atmosphere of warmth and openness in which you’re free to discuss anything and explore yourself as deeply as you would like.
I frequently help people suffering from depression, anxiety, loss, low self-esteem, difficult life changes, traumatic histories, and challenges creating or sustaining relationships. Maybe shame and self-criticism make you feel down and inadequate. Or you’re unhappy with how your life is going and don’t know how to make it more fulfilling. Perhaps you’ve had some painful life experiences that continue to cause you anger, sadness, or stress. Maybe you find that you can’t stop worrying about things or you keep struggling through the same issues in your relationships. Or you could just be hurting and don’t understand why.
My approach respects the complexity and uniqueness of each person’s experience. We’ll work to address the roots of your issues in order to undergo a transformative process that goes beyond just intellectual understanding and surface level changes. For those struggling with unresolved emotional pain or trauma, I have extensive experience working with deep feelings and childhood wounding. I can help you break out of harmful patterns and live a more satisfying life.
In addition to individuals, I also work with couples and families to improve communication, solve conflicts, and develop more loving connections. If your relationship is stuck in patterns of hurt, anger and distrust, or you have become critical or distant towards each other, I can help you interrupt these repetitive cycles and replace them with more effective communication and problem solving skills.
For clients based in the Boise area, I also offer walk and talk therapy as part of my practice.
