I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Hope International University and received a Bachelor Degree in Human Development with an emphasis in Biblical Studies. Also from Hope, I earned my Master of Arts Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in December 2007. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the states of Idaho and California specializing in individual, couples and family therapy and certified in EMDR Therapy.
Among my areas of expertise are EMDR Therapy, Depression, Anxiety, Women's Issues, Loss and Grief issues and Christian counseling.
I have worked many years as a counselor in the prison system, as well as a volunteer Hospital and Hospice Chaplain. I have a passion for counseling individuals who are struggling to make it through the difficult storms and transitions of life while offering a safe, emphatic, and supportive environment in which to achieve the peace and stability you are looking for. As a married women, mother, and grandmother I provide a nurturing environment to explore the challenging issues people often face be it single parenting, aging, self image issues or relationship difficulties. The ultimate goal of therapy is offering a compassionate environment in which you can heal and experience new personal growth while being supported through the process.
My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help my clients effectively address personal life challenges and transitions. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
