I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and second generation Alaskan. I have experience working in a diverse number of fields, and the mental health field for 14 years. I attended Gonzaga University and Montana State for undergraduate school and Alaska Pacific University for my Master's of Science in Counseling Psychology. My clients tell me that they appreciate my easy-going style, and comfort with a vast range of topics, especially around what can be an emotionally charged issue for many: sexuality. I have specialized training in the Gottman Method for Couples therapy, working with sexuality issues and Women's health, and am a trained EMDR provider. I am one of four AASECT certified sex therapists in Alaska.
GROUPS AND COMMUNITY
In addition to my therapy practice, I am a group facilitator for Let Every Woman Know's gynecological cancer support groups. I frequently offer workshops throughout the Anchorage area. I have offered a group for Mothers and Daughters (age 9-11) in preparation for adolescence, and served on the Anchorage School Board Health Curriculum Committee which works to advance the quality of sex education in our schools. I engage in regular consultation groups with other professionals in the community to enhance my knowledge, connection, and competence.
I believe counseling is most effective when it is an honest and collaborative process that is sometimes difficult - but you can have fun with it too! I tailor my style to each client usually including some element of emotional processing for release as well as solution-focused work to enhance coping skills for triggers and stressors. I truly enjoy this work, and am honored to be a witness to the growth and transformation that my clients experience.
ONLINE SCHEDULING AND SECURE MESSAGING
I offer state of the art business practices for my clients including online scheduling and appointment management, text-message or email appointment reminders, and secure email. You can access these features by clicking here.
I will electronically bill your insurance as a courtesy and am a contracted provider with First Choice, Multiplan, and Blue Cross/Premera. Many other plans reimburse at IN network rates. The only insurances I cannot accept are Tricare, Medicare, and Medicaid.
