About Me

I specialize in individual, couples, and family therapy and maintain a private practice in Valentine, NE.

I have over 23 years experience as a therapist. I am a graduate of Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA and a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients.

My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.  With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

 I use EMDR Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and talk therapy to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. 

A public service announcement showing the impact of EMDR therapy on people’s lives is available on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUDd7_asUP0kI0WCRnl2ELw/featured .
