Having worked as a law enforcement officer for over 25 years, I bring a wealth of experience and empathy to my role at Crossroads Counseling.  Throughout my law enforcement career, I have encountered numerous individuals experiencing some of the most challenging moments of their lives and these encounters have manifested in my deep commitment to offer unwavering support.  I understand the toll of repeated exposure to trauma, and I recognize that such exposure leaves scar tissue that sometimes presents itself at inopportune times.   

Seeking help is one the most courageous acts in a person’s life and I recognize the apprehension that comes along with it. I aim to provide a nonjudgmental space to allow a person to feel the empowerment of respect and dignity, maybe for the first time in their life.  My demeanor is marked by compassion, warmth, and a touch of levity, fostering an atmosphere of ease and comfort.  I also believe in the use of humor and appropriate use of sarcasm to build rapport and encourage self-reflection.   

I received my B.S. in Psychology from Monmouth College and M.S. in Military and First Responder Psychology from Colorado State University.  I have been married for 24 years to my college sweetheart and we have two adult sons.
