I am blessed to have grown up in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. I love spending time with my family and friends, whether it is cooking a delicious meal, camping, fishing, rafting, or going on a hike with our dog.
Counseling is a process of self discovery and growth, and I feel lucky that my clients invite me to go on their journey of change with them. I am very passionate about what I do. I have been in private practice for almost three years. Prior to starting my practice, I worked therapeutically for eleven years in a variety of settings including: Community Mental Health, Crisis Response & Intervention, and a Jail Diversion program. I work to create an authentic and collaborative relationship with a foundation in trust, confidentiality, and safety. My hope is to help individuals increase their awareness and understanding of themselves and their relationships, by focusing on strengths to create a sense of wellness and stability in their lives.
I am down-to-earth, non-judgmental, direct, and incorporate humor whenever possible and appropriate. Having a good fit and connection with a counselor is the most important indicator of success in therapy. If it seems like I could be that person for you or if you have any further questions, please reach out to me today!
