Helping Clients Thrive
I approach my work with compassion, patience, and understanding and seek to create a safe, encouraging environment for all of my clients. My life experiences have inspired a passion for connecting with those in need and helping them find their way in the midst of their trials. I believe that most challenges can be overcome with intentional exploration and resourceful insight. As my client, my goal for you will be to identify the source of the current obstacle, construct a new perspective, and establish an action plan. We’ll work collaboratively to implement creative strategies focused on improving relationships and overall quality of life. In the midst of what may seem like chaos, we’ll find a sense of calm, anticipated hope, and even moments of laughter.
I especially enjoy helping adolescents and families find common ground to navigate through conflict and get back to having fun and making memories. I also have a heart for women experiencing symptoms of emotional disorders such as depression and anxiety, as well as those struggling with life transitions.
I am a wife and the mom of two teenagers (and two dogs) living life with authenticity and adventure. Relationships are very important to me so I am intentional about spending quality time with family and friends. I am refreshed by shared laughter, some time at the gym, a run with a friend, or an evening of worship with my favorite Christian artists. I express my creativity through photography of people, relationships, and sports (lacrosse). To me, a picture is worth a thousand words and I’m passionate about preserving memories. I love the ocean air, the Rocky Mountains, and brief visits to NYC and Chicago.
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.” – Oscar Wilde
This seems so simple, yet is quite complex in the midst of a society so focused on comparison and competition. There is no one else like you! Embrace your uniqueness and celebrate who you are! I want to be the kind of mom who instills this in my kids and a therapist who encourages it in the lives of my clients.
Enter at the Lobby Entrance of the Offices at Liberty Center and take the elevator up to the third floor. The office is on the left (follow signs for ThrivePointe). When you arrive, check in at the iPad, and grab a beverage while you wait for your therapist.
Free parking is available in the Warehouse Row Garage (behind Cobb Theater) and the surface lots behind the Offices at Liberty Center, which is off of Haskell St. Metered parking is available throughout the property. These meters have a 90-minute limit, and accept coins and credit cards.
