Overview

I started my academic career with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology from College of Idaho with classes and work in athletic performance/training. Initially, my area of focus was human performance, motivation, and what drives high performers. Before applying to grad. school, I worked on an acute psychiatric unit and saw new settings and circumstances for human performance, motivation, and what drives success despite serious mental health issues.

I earned a Master’s of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Gonzaga University and completed a 15 month internship in the Veterans Administration. In graduate school, I continued to work on human motivation along with learning about the impact of and best ways to treat trauma.

I deeply believe in a person’s ability to grow and change. We are able to overcome obstacles when we are understood, supported, and accepted. Within the safety of the therapeutic relationship, challenges to ideas and behaviors are constructive and helpful.
