MY STORY

After 10 years as a homemaker, I returned to school to secure my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Southern Nazarene University in 2008.  I started my individual practice in 2011 with a License in Professional Counseling and gained the National Certified Counselor (NCC) credential in 2012.  I hold licenses in the states of Nebraska, Missouri, and Oklahoma. I

currently practice in Elkhorn, Nebraska.  I've had the privilege to journey with clients for over 13 years. 

I grew up in Indianapolis, IN and Edmond, OK, the fourth of four children in a multi-musical, culturally diverse family. I am married and have three lovely children. I enjoy traveling, art, playing the Cello, eating delicious things, and yammering on about whatever I happen to find interesting. I try to balance work and family life by psychoanalyzing my husband’s obsession with Fords.

MY APPROACH

I believe the single most important condition for an effective therapeutic experience is the connection between the Therapist and Client. This connection should be one of respect, safety and with an emphasis on growth and movement towards a more healthy place for the client. 

Much of our emotional suffering is rooted in the struggle to reconcile our unexpected and painful experiences (both past and present) with our desire for a fulfilling and happy life. At times, we find that the ways we previously made sense of life no longer fit. These difficult seasons face us all with the challenge and opportunity to find and create meaning in spite of chaos. Even in the midst of sorrow we can discover how to embrace the moments of peace and deepen our capacity for joy. Through the therapeutic encounter, I seek to cultivate a supportive environment that facilitates the gaining of deeper self-awareness while collaborating toward more authentic and satisfying engagement in relationships with others.
