I am excited to be part of the Northwest Arkansas community. I bring over 20 years experience in psychotherapy/counseling and have trained in many mental health modalities including Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, EMDR, and Natural Processing (EMDR with somatic processing) as well as energy healing.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) licensed in Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois. I earned my Bachelors in Social Work from St. Francis University in Joliet, Illinois and graduated from University of Illinois in Chicago with my Masters in Social Work. Attending Barbara Brennan School of Healing in Florida, is where I studied one of the most advanced energy healing modalities available that is utilized to compliment traditional therapy when requested.
My professional work began as a school social worker. Soon afterwards I was drawn to begin working with trauma and sexual abuse in private practice. My experience expanded as I worked in community mental health with adults, children, couples and families.
I am excited to be able to offer professional, private, and personalized counseling to those seeking a deeper connection with themselves and others. My belief is that all healing begins with awareness and is completed by transformation in the heart. While traditional therapy is of great value, I have learned over the years that at times, words are not enough.
Underneath most of our pain is a longing to connect to self and others at a deeper level. My passion is helping others heal their pain and find true peace so that our relationship with self and others deepens.
