My Approach to Helping

I work well with adults, children, and adolescents experiencing anxiety and mood concerns, identity issues, relationship concerns, behavioral issues, trauma, and spiritual exploration. I enjoy assisting individuals in connecting the mind, body, and spirit with care and integration. 

I come with an intuitive and creative space. I believe it is our subconscious that dictates much of our lack of clarity, our shame, our codependent habits, and more. Once we can gain access to this, we can build a healthier internal dialogue back into our lives, giving us access to embodiment and further peace of mind. I can help you express yourself and heal with personalized strategies and a person-centered space. My goal is to help you get yourself into a state of embodiment that is mindful and self-supporting in the long run. 

I enjoy boarding or biking of any kind, supporting the Boise music scene, reading fiction, and spending time in any nature I can find.

I believe it takes great strength to address those parts of ourselves that feel so distant, neglected, and hidden. When our mental health is compromised for so long it is only natural to lead towards a wall of conflicting feelings. This does not define you though and with this strength it doesn’t have to do so”

I am a Telehealth Provider

I know that it can be hard to fit appointments into your daily life. Leaving home when you are managing mental health symptoms, or even just finding time to commute regularly to an in-person appointment can be difficult. Telehealth is the ability to provide mental health care services from a distance through technology

A Few Services I Provide

Services also known as modes or types of mental health care sessions can be given in a variety of formats, including:

  • Individual Therapy & Counseling: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist. Sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
  • Marital/Couples Counseling: This type of therapy helps a couple that is struggling with aspects of their relationship. This type of therapy can also be used to help spouses and partners understand why their loved one has a mental disorder, what changes in communication and behaviors can help, and what they can do to cope.
  • Premarital Counseling: A type of therapy that helps couples take the next step in their relationship, resolve issues in their relationship before they commit to marriage, or set relationship goals.
  • Family Counseling: Because family is a key part of the team that helps people with mental illness get better, it is sometimes helpful for family members to understand what their loved one is going through, how they themselves can cope, and what they can do to help.
  • Relationship Counseling: Focuses on improving the relationship between individuals by helping them resolve interpersonal issues. The relationship may fall under the marital, couple or family groups or may be in-laws, friends, co-workers, or other acquaintances.
  • Group Counseling: Two or more patients may participate in therapy at the same time. Patients can share experiences and learn that others feel the same way and have had the same experiences.
  • Telehealth: Also known as teletherapy, generally, refers to individual psychotherapy or talk therapy delivered through technology like video conferencing.

Ages I Work With

Each stage of life creates different challenges to good mental health. Eating right, staying physically active, getting enough sleep, and having health relationship will help support good mental health & wellness throughout life.

An accurate diagnosis and an age-appropriate treatment program is crucial when one is suffering from mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or other mental health disorder. I offer services for:

  • Children (1-12)
  • Teens (13+)
  • Adults (18-55)
  • Elders (56-100+)

Therapy Groups​

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that aims to help people manage mental health conditions or cope with negative experiences and behaviors.
Group therapy can be beneficial for a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and addiction.
One of the goals of group therapy is to bring people who share similar experiences together. 

Meeting other people recovering from or working through similar issues helps people realize that they are not alone.

By participating in group therapy, individuals can gain valuable insight and feedback from others who have similar experiences and challenges.
Group members and therapists can help each other by sharing information and offering advice.
Group therapy members can also hold each other accountable for their progress and encourage each other to make positive changes.
Group members can support, reassure, and help each other improve throughout the treatment.
Below are the groups I lead:

  • Youth Ages 3-17
  • Young Adults 18-25 years of age
  • Co-parenting
  • Children with incarcerated parents
  • Children with extensive trauma
  • Post incarceration adults 
  • Addiction Recovery

Remember, taking the first step towards seeking help and support is often the hardest, but it can also be the most rewarding.

Industries & Communities Serves

Community can be defined in many ways, but when simplified down to its most important element, community is all about connection. Community is not just an entity or a group of people, it’s a feeling. It’s feeling connected to others, feeling accepted for who you are and feeling supported.

We’re social beings, and we are not meant to live in isolation. Community is critical for us to thrive, especially for someone with mental illness who is already experiencing the common symptoms of loneliness and isolation. Below are some of the communities I work with to help provide a sense of belonging, support, and purpose.

  • Education
  • Entertainment Industry
  • First Responder/Medical
  • Professionals
  • Military/Law Enforcement
  • Professional Sports
  • Self-Employed and Freelance Professionals

Facility Accessibility

Morgan Health Centers and its Affiliates are outpatient centers and NOT an emergency care facility. In case of an emergency please contact a primary care physician or the local emergency room, police or 911.

Those with disabilities often face major barriers getting the health care services they need. Research shows that, compared to people with out disabilities, people with disabilities are less likely to receive comprehensive preventative care. Improving physical access to health care services is essential to achieving health equity. 

We recognize the needs of patients with disabilities, and make every effort to comply with state and federal accessibility regulations and accommodate these patients.

  • Accessible Parking
  • Gender Neutral Bathroom
  • Service Animals Welcome
  • Wheelchair Accessible Building
  • Wheelchair Accessible Restroom
