Helping Clients Thrive

I look forward to your call to see if I am a good fit to meet your needs! I focus on creating a strong working relationship with my clients because that provides the best foundation for change. Seeking counseling can feel a little daunting, which is why it’s important to me that you feel heard and supported. I am committed to making your investment in counseling worth it by using active approaches that are supported by research. I will collaborate with you to set goals that keep us focused. In our sessions, I will be transparent about the techniques we are using so you can learn to be your own therapist!

How I Recharge

I enjoy helping my clients get support and engage in self-care so I make sure to find time to do that myself! One of my favorite family activities is getting outdoors for hiking and camping. To manage stress, I enjoy trail running, weight lifting, and cooking. A major way I recharge is through learning. I have a never-ending list of books and articles I am digging into because I love digesting information and figuring out how to apply it.

Why I Became a Therapist

I decided to become a therapist because of backpacking on the Appalachian Trail! When I was a teenager, I spent one week every summer going on wilderness adventures through a local camp. I was always amazed at how much each person grew and changed because of the trust and openness we developed as a group. Getting trained as an adventure-based and group therapist was my first step, and then I realized I loved so many other types of therapy as well. Much of my work is informed by positive psychology (what helps us feel happy), attachment theory (how we get our needs met in relationships), and cognitive-behavioral theory (how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors interact). I am a pretty big fan of all things related to time management and productivity, and I love to help clients conquer goals. Because I also enjoy teaching and training, I was a professor of counseling for 11 years before focusing on ThrivePointe full-time. One of my life passions is helping therapists learn how to provide great therapy.

Why I started ThrivePointe

I partnered with Stephanie Shell to start ThrivePointe because I wanted to offer clients innovative and unique help to solve problems. Over the years, I’ve collected feedback from clients about what they did and didn’t like from their counseling experiences. We took that feedback and created an experience you will be proud to be part of! We put together an amazing team of therapists who have great interpersonal skills and the experience it takes to offer effective therapy. ThrivePointe is committed to doing what works so you can make the changes you want to make.
