Counseling

My counseling approach is holistic and utilizes mindfulness, guided imagery, body awareness, and self-compassion.  I specialize in anxiety, chronic stress, grief, women's issues, life transitions, and relationship concerns.

 

Telehealth sessions are available for residents of Virginia.    

Music Therapy

I offer music therapy sessions utilizing The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery & Music (GIM).  This music-centered approach evokes images, memories, emotions, and creative insights that can help uncover and illuminate inner resources.

In-person GIM sessions are suspended at this time due to COVID-19.  Please contact me for additional information.

 
 

About

I reside in the prairies of South Dakota and have also called the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia home.  I draw from the natural world, music, and literature as inspiration in my work as a therapist.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Virginia and a Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC).  I received my M.A. in Counseling from Eastern Mennonite University and my B.S. in Music Therapy from Indiana University.  I am a Fellow by the Association of Music & Imagery and completed training for The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery & Music through the Atlantis Institute of Consciousness.  My previous work includes utilizing music therapy in a non-profit hospice and working in college counseling centers at James Madison University and University of Virginia.
