Provider Details

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and have over 30 years of experience assisting individuals, couples and families adjust to life transitions. I have a Doctor of Social Work from the University of Southern California, a Master’s in social work from Walla Walla University and my undergraduate degree is in psychology from Union College, Lincoln, NE.

My specialty is in working with life transitions and trauma. Life is ever changing and sometimes you find yourself dodging curve balls. Transitioning after completing college, ending a long- term relationship, getting married, or even getting older and retiring can be a challenge. Whether the life change is a good one or not, it can cause stress. This can often lead to anxiety or depression as one struggles with finding value in their new life roles. I walk side by side with you to find peace, contentment, and value within your life.

My therapeutic approach is relaxed and catered toward each individual’s needs and learning styles. I believe in exploring each individual in a holistic fashion, considering the influences within their lives including relationships, emotional and physical health, and spirituality. I believe in the value of each individual and am an ally for LGBTQ+ community.

I look forward to getting to know you and your story as we work together to enhance your life journey.
