My private practice is located in North Scottsdale, within the offices of the Wellington-Alexander Center. I work with children (ages 6 and older), pre-teens, adolescents and adults. I work with individuals, couples and families with issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, career, academic and workplace issues, relationship issues, LGBT concerns, personal growth and spirituality.

I use various therapeutic approaches depending on the needs of the client. These approaches include Developmental, Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Existential, Family-Systems, Mindfulness-Based, Transpersonal, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Brainspotting, and Hypnotherapy. I have experience providing professional counseling in clinical, business, and school settings.

Apart from my private practice, I am also a Reiki Master and have a great appreciation and respect for alternative as well as conventional treatment approaches.

I am originally from a rural farming community in southeastern Wisconsin. After I completed my master’s degree, I worked as a counselor in the Milwaukee area for many years. Then, after falling in love with the desert, I relocated to Scottsdale in 2014. I enjoy running, hiking, yoga, reading, meditation, singing and drumming.
