As a young child, I moved often and lived in many places. My dad was in the U.S. Army and was stationed at Fort Richardson. We arrived in Alaska 21 days before my eleventh birthday. As we drove from Georgia, I daydreamed of snowmen, igloos and polar bears the entire way up. Although the winters are long, I can say I truly admire Alaska and can not imagine calling any other place home. I enjoy many Alaska activities, such as hiking and camping. I like to have freedom to enjoy the outdoors in the winter and often go snowshoe hiking and cross-country skiing. For me, being out on the trails, away form the hustle and bustle of life is calming and re-energizing at the same time. When I am away from work, I enjoy spending my time experiencing Alaska and spending time with family and friends.
I am a licensed professional counselor providing individual and family therapy. I attended the University of Alaska Anchorage and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology. Helping people of all ages is one of my passions. I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I currently work with children ages 12 and older and adults. I have extensive experience working in community mental health as well as working in the justice system. I work with individuals with a wide range of challenges in life, including all types of anxiety, PTSD, depression, eating disorders, and adjusting to difficult life situations. I believe everyone has growth potential and can overcome challenges with the appropriate supports and skills. In addition to my work with individuals and families, I provide consultation and supervision to other mental health professionals.
