I have been practicing as a mental health counselor for over a decade. Prior to practicing in Boise, I earned a Master of Social Work degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. I worked in St. Louis for two years post graduate as a Clinical Case Manager and counselor. Throughout my career I have worked with numerous populations in a variety of settings. I currently focus my counseling practice on adolescents and adults who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
While the treatment modality I primarily use is EMDR Therapy, I also draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness practices. The following are the areas I specialize in, however I have experience in treating a variety of issues and am happy to meet with new clients in order to tailor therapeutic goals to meet individual needs.
Areas of Focus
- Anxiety disorders (this includes Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder with or without Agoraphobia, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Depressive disorders (including Post-Partum Depression, Dysthymia and single-episodes of depression related to grief and loss)
- Symptoms of stress related to work, school, and/or relationships

- Emergency and same day appointments are available upon request and availability.
- I’m happy to consult by phone to answer any questions prior to scheduling an appointment.
- I bill insurance as a courtesy to my clients and am an in-network provider for many insurance panels CLICK HERE to see a list of current insurance plans under which my services are covered.
- I also offer telehealth/remote counseling sessions that are fully secure and HIPAA compliant. What began as a necessary option during the COVID-19 response sometimes also works best for some people desiring this option. So whether it is a period of necessary social distancing, or you just prefer telehealth, let me know and we can easily get this set up.
