Mission and Focus:
I believe that everyone can obtain a better quality of life and achieve an improved level of recovery to any degree, with focused support and care. My approach is based strongly on cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, trauma informed care, harm reduction model, collaborative problem solving, and the development of personal awareness and resiliency. I have been providing mental and behavioral health services in Jackson County for over seven years and previously for three years in Arizona. Having worked with all ages and traumatic brain injuries, I have learned that healthy and supportive relationships promote the most long-lasting change, which is why the person-centered approach is key in meeting an individual’s needs.
I enjoy cooking and traveling, spending time with my family, and watching shows on a lazy day. I also enjoy fishing, rafting, and other outdoors activities.
