Emotional Health/Personal Growth Consultant
Trauma Specialist & Brain Spotting
I am a Nationally Board Certified Counselor. I practiced as a Licensed Psychotherapist specializing in trauma and addiction in Michigan for 10 years before relocating to Redding CA in 2016. I graduated from Liberty University in VA with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 1992 and began working in the criminal justice field and education before returning to school to obtain a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling and School Counseling in 2009. I am currently pursuing my Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology with California Southern University. I am an avid researcher and lover of Truth and am passionate about Quantum Physics and Neuroscience.
I completed intensive training through the National Institute of Trauma and Loss in Children in 2009. I was one of 11 authors that drafted the Michigan Department of Community Health's Rape Prevention and Education Program in 2010.
I am trained in Brainspotting - A clinical treatment model integrating the Science of Attachment, Neurobiology and Trauma Responses.
I believe that being understood brings about healing and provides hope to my clients. My desire is to provide a safe place that allows my clients to feel heard, validated, and understood. We work together as a team to bring healing to the soul and to reach the goal of living life to one's fullest potential. This is created by deriving meaning and purpose from within, creating a state of flow.
