Hello and Welcome!
Hello and welcome to my website. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, offering skillful psychotherapy services with warmth and understanding. I work with men, women, trans, teens, couples, and groups experiencing a wide range of life issues, including anxiety, depression, addictions, PTSD, body image, childhood trauma, domestic violence, and sexual orientation.
There are many reasons to enlist a psychotherapist or counselor, including seeking a better understanding of yourself, following a path of self-discovery, looking for hope and support, or stepping more powerfully into yourself to live the life you wish to have. Since our relationships are so core to engaging our biggest selves, talking with a therapist can often help identify our personal patterns of relating in a way that may help us begin to enjoy more satisfying relationships.
The therapy process invites self-curiosity to awaken what works well while at the same time compassionately seeks to heal wounds that continue to hold pain. Therapy can help shift your deeper sense of purpose and meaning to create greater room for living more authentically.
As you consider what type of therapist will work best for you, I invite you to explore the information on my website to gain a better understanding of me, my services, and what I may bring to the relationship.
Please feel free to contact me at 208.602.2660.
Psychotherapy and Counseling
Therapy looks different for everyone. Some therapy is brief and used to address a specific situation. And some therapy is more long term, more in-depth, focusing on deeper feelings and personality types.
Often therapy can start by relieving an initital crisis, addressing upsetting situations, or alleviating significant feelings of anxiety, depression, fear, anger, loneliness, and/or hopelessness. Once these initial circumstances start to feel better, therapy can make room to explore deeper feelings, giving way to enriching our relationships with others. My professional framework places great value on the client-therapist relationship, and, by establishing trust and rapport between us, I believe great work can be done to help you access your full self.
I have been trained in many therapeutic approaches. My style is interpersonal and analytical. I look at the whole person and believe that you know yourself better than anyone. I work together with you to explore the issues you find important so that we may begin to uncover those parts of you that seek to be reawakened.
Consultation and Supervision
I have been providing consultation and supervision throughout my career to professionals in the field. It's an area of great passion and dedication for me. Please feel free to contact me regarding this.
My private practice includes work with men, women, trans, teens, couples, and groups. My passion for the work is evident through my eclectic interests. I have worked with an array of issues, including anxiety, PTSD, depression, eating disorders, sexual addiction, attachment, gender questions, and sexual trauma. I am and have been involved with varioius groups and organizations, including the Eating Disorder Professionals of Idaho (EDPI); Allies Linked for Prevention of HIV and AIDS (a.l.p.h.a.); I have worked with the Ashwood Addiction Recovery Center; and Terry Reilly SANE Solutions, offering treatment services to individuals and groups.
