Do the demands of life leave you feeling overwhelmed with stress and anxiety? Are you struggling to find meaning or purpose in your life? Are you feeling lonely or lacking social connections? Or, are you finding it hard to manage your emotions? If so, let me help. Working collaboratively, we can identify the changes you want to make in your life and I can assist you with gaining tools and developing strategies to achieve your therapeutic goals. To learn more about me, please read on.

After working for over ten years in social services, I returned to school and earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Boise State University. I am an Idaho Licensed Master Social Worker and therapist at K-Counseling & Anxiety Treatment Center. In my work with clients over the years, I have had the privilege of working with people from various backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures. I strongly believe that we all deserve dignity and respect, which is a cornerstone for my work with clients. I practice from a strengths-based perspective, drawing from several therapeutic modalities. I approach my work with clients with unconditional positive regard and a person-centered focus. It is my goal to build a trusting therapeutic relationship with clients where they feel safe and supported on their healing journey. Cultivating hope and resiliency is central to the work I do with individuals, as it helps them identify their strengths and reach their full potential. As clients begin to recognize their unique abilities, capabilities and learn new skills, they are better able to identify their own solutions leading to empowerment, confidence and a greater sense of well-being.

In my spare time, I enjoy digging in the garden or tossing a ball around with my pups. I’m happiest outdoors, a stroll on the seashore or a mountain hike is sure to refresh my soul. Reading is my great escape, letting me be anything I want or go anywhere without ever leaving my couch. I cherish time spent with my husband, family and friends. I find delight in the little things in life, like seeing a rainbow after a rain or smelling the fragrance of spring as flowers begin to open after a long winter.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing your time here. I invite you to schedule an appointment with me today and begin your healing journey. You will find at K-Counseling, we offer a warm and caring environment which fosters healing and hope for those we serve.

Hi! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I graduated from New York University with a Master’s degree in Counseling & Wellness. I have experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families. My experience also includes addressing difficult transitions, anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, anger, and impulsivity. I utilize eclectic, person-centered, solution-focused, narrative, and mindfulness techniques. I believe in providing a safe & inclusive space that does not discriminate based on race, gender, sexuality, religion, disability or any aspect relating to a person’s identity. I collaborate with each client to create a unique treatment plan to develop strategies that reduce symptoms quickly to help them create a more meaningful & satisfying life.

I grew up in the Treasure Valley and I recently moved back to Boise. When I am not at work, I enjoy hiking, practicing yoga, playing sports, journaling, cooking, and connecting with loved ones!
