I obtained a Master's of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling (M.S.) from Capella University of Minneapolis and a Bachelor's of Science degree in Psychology (B.S.) from Boise State University of Boise. I am currently a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC-5125) in the State of Idaho. I am a Member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and am currently Executive Director of the Brain Injury Alliance of Idaho. My education included coursework in areas such as family and couples therapy, directive and nondirective therapeutic intervention, child and adolescent development, group psychotherapy, human sexuality, DSM based diagnosis and assessment, gender and ethnicity studies, spirituality and counseling, substance use and abuse counseling, and career development counseling.
I value an active dialogue between people in an effort to explore change and identify patterns. My approach to therapy involves both a directive and nondirective style suggesting concerns occur within the nature of relationships and the context of environments. I attempt to bring about small changes within individuals, couple, or family systems that lead to discovery of internal resources in producing useful adjustment. My purpose is to help explore resources such as strengths, resiliency, and hope in each unique situation. Respect for each member's wishes is essential to a successful therapeutic process. It is my understanding that therapeutic goals are most productive when all parties involved agree.
