Welcome to Connections Counseling, LLC. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Alaska as well as Kansas (LCPC) and licensed to do teletherapy in Florida. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) in 1998. After working as a Case Manager for residential teens, a Social Worker, an Adjunct Professor for UAA’s Psychology Department and as a Research Associate for KidsCount Alaska I returned to UAA to earn my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, which I completed in 2010. After graduation I began working in the Chemical Dependency and Mental Health fields. In the Fall of 2011 I again returned to UAA to earn my Graduate Certificate in Children’s Mental Health while I was the Clinician for an adolescent boy’s residential program.
I specialize in anxiety and trauma utilizing multiple treatment methods to help find people find the ability to enjoy and engage in their life. I have been trained in EMDR and have recently completed my certification in Somatic Experiencing which is a psychobiological approach to resolving trauma and chronic stress.
