Education & Experience
I am a relationship therapist and trauma resolution specialist who provides counseling and therapy services for adult individuals and couples. I am an EMDRIA Certified EMDR therapist, a Certified Imago Relationships Therapist (CIRT), and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).
I specialize in helping adults with a history of childhood trauma, relationship loss, and other forms of loss heal and become whole. This healing translates into more power and presence in personal pursuits and areas of influence, including: significant relationships, friendships, marriage, parenting & caregiving, leadership, work and career life, community involvement, and spirituality and faith expression.
My professional background includes clinical skills serving in acute pediatric/adolescent inpatient hospital programs, intensive adult mental health and substance recovery, hospice and bereavement, community mental health, traumatic brain injury rehabilitation, and crisis intervention. Prior to founding Hope’s Lantern, I was honored to serve as Senior Staff Therapist for Dr. David Tharp at Stonebriar Psychiatric Services, a Christian psychiatric practice. I served at Stonebriar for over 12 years.
While I specialize in providing Christian counseling and therapy for individuals and couples who desire to integrate their Christian faith into their healing process, I respect the unique personhood of each individual and serve individuals of various belief systems.
