About Me

I am a board-certified Licensed Professional Counselor in Wyoming and North Carolina. I received my Master's in Clinical Psychology from UNC-Charlotte in 2006. Since, I have worked as a mental health therapist providing services to adults and couples. I have experience in hospital settings where I provided counseling services to individuals and families following traumatic injury or illness. I have also worked in the financial industry in Leadership Development and Human Resources.

I am originally from Charlotte, North Carolina but currently live in Jackson, WY with my husband and two children.

My Approach

The counseling experience is unlike anything else. It should feel safe and encouraging while also being uncomfortable and hard at times. That is why finding a counselor that you feel comfortable with is so important. I believe the client-therapist relationship is fundamental to the work that can be accomplished. Therefore, I base my approach on Client-Centered Therapy. I will also use techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy, and Insight Oriented Therapy. I also have formal training and experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I can also provide Faith-Based Christian counseling.
