These are all issues that counseling is designed to help with. You have already done the hard work to reach out and research counseling options! You don’t have to do the rest alone.

I became a counselor because I am passionate about the idea that strong relationships build strong communities. When things are difficult at home, everything else in the world seems so much harder. It is my honor to work with clients to achieve their goals through person-centered, customized, and evidence-based relationship counseling and couples counseling. I grew up in a military family and love putting down roots in beautiful Eagle River, Alaska with my husband and three children.
I received my Master’s Degree of Science (MS) in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University in 2020 and became board certified as a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) in 2021. I became a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in 2022. I have received post-graduate training in the Gottman Method for couples counseling , EMDR for processing trauma, multicultural counseling, grief, and telehealth. I have worked in the mental health field since 2017.
My treatment approaches are customized to meet the needs of the client. Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, The Gottman Method, EMDR, and Existential Therapy are some approaches used. I have experience treating couples’ issues, anxiety, depression, attachment issues, trauma, complex PTSD, change of life issues, LGBTQ+ issues, OCD, parent child conflict, adolescents, young adult issues, and grief. Christian counseling is available upon request.
