As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I work with adult individuals and couples from all walks of life with issues such as life transitions, current crisis situations, past hurts, effective communication and much more. I am committed to an empathetic, motivating, validating, and empowering approach to counseling.
I am especially passionate about and have been successfully working with firefighters, EMS personnel and law enforcement for over 3 years. My studies have included specific emphasis in crisis and trauma counseling; I have also completed and regularly attend a variety of professional development and continuing education courses related to emergency first responder cultural competence.
I hold a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University (Columbia, MD) and a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies from Regis University (Denver, CO). I am an animal lover, have completed training in animal-assisted therapy (AAT) and am working toward certification as an animal-assisted therapist.
