Hello! Thank you for taking your time to review my credentials. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor #4513 in Montana and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor #00117802 nationally. I began my career as a lay counselor in the Pastoral Care Department of Faith Chapel in Billings, Montana. I then decided to return to school to further my education so I could better understand how the psychological, physical, and spiritual (mind-body-spirit) components of a person interacte to complete a picture of wholeness and wellness. I hold a Master's of Science degree in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from Montana State University Billings.
I provide counseling to individuals, couples, and families. I am also Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy trained.
My approach to therapy is to establish a trusting, working, and professional relationship where we can address your concerns and issues, then develop a plan to establish a healthy foundation for you to live well and thrive equipped with skills and tools to assist you along the way. For therapy techniques, I use a variety some of which include a cognitive-behavioral approach (CBT), person-centered approach (I am for you!), solution-focused (problem solving), psychodynamic (we'll talk) and EMDR therapy (please visit www.emdria.org for full explanation).
I am a member of:
American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC)
American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA)
Montana Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors Association (MLCPCA)
Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC)
