Life stress can negatively affect your mind, body and spirit. Unmanaged life stress may overload your immune, hormonal, or cardiovascular systems. Your emotions may be out of balance. You may develop depression, addictions, and your interpersonal relationships may suffer.
If you are experiencing current major life stress or unresolved past traumas, I can help you. I have almost 15 years of experience teaching, researching and treating the affects of stress on the mind, body, spirit, and relationships. No matter how low you feel, there is always room for recovery and growth. With the right support and skills you can begin to build the life you want.
My therapeutic manner is respectful, collaborative, gentle, and encouraging. I support your strengths and allow you space for your suffering. I provide a safe setting which combines emotional support with teaching skills such as mindfulness, cognitive reframing, expression, and relaxation.
I have sophisticated skills in therapeutic techniques that include but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral techniques that have been shown to work in clinical research studies and are considered the most effective treatment for anxiety disorders and depression. I also teach you to identify, accept, and express emotions and to deal with negative thought patterns. I also teach problem solving and communication skills to help strengthen your relationships. I use existential and cognitive techniques to help you find meaning and reengage in life and to have healthier relationships.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, educator, and wellness coach in Boise Idaho.

I have conducted workshops for professionals, students, and the general public on topics that include Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Men and Depression, “The Connection: Mind your body”, and Keys to a Thriving Healthy Relationships.
I specialize in working with people experiencing grief, loss, anxiety, depression, or relationship difficulties. I also work with individuals searching for meaning in their lives or struggling with daily life, helping to support them on their path toward healing and growth. I believe therapy involves all aspects of the self, including the emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual. I utilize an integrative approach with an emphasis on strength based therapy and have received advanced training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy, Mind Body Medicine.

It is your responsibility to know your insurance benefits. You can call the customer service number on your insurance card and ask for your “mental health benefits in an office setting”, specifically if you have: co-pay, deductible and/or co-insurance, any limits on number of sessions per policy period, and any authorization requirements for counseling or psychological testing.
It is our policy to collect your CO-PAYMENT at the time of service. If you have a DEDUCTIBLE and/or CO-INSURANCE, we will submit the claim for service to your insurance company, and when we receive the Coordination of Benefits/Explanation of Benefits statement (with or without payment from your health insurance company), we will send you a statement indicating your payment-due amount. In the event your insurance does not pay, the patient is ultimately responsible for the charges.
The billing statements to you go out during the first week of each month, and payment is due by the end of the month. You can mail your payment, call us to take a payment by credit card, or bring cash and pay at your next appointment (if it is within the current month). If you choose to pay with cash, please bring the exact amount. We do not make change or carry credit amounts on your account.
