PARTNERING COUNSELORS

These former counseling center interns have chosen to remain on-site and establish their own practices as TSC Counseling Center partners. Payments and scheduling are separate, but the quality is the same! Each counselor has an affordable base fee then works off a sliding scale based on the client's income. Contact the TSC counseling office for more information.

As a married, working mother of 1, grandmother of 2, I am familiar with the struggles life throws at us. I believe in the biopsychosocial aspect of healing.  Meaning I look at all aspects of life in the healing process; biological, psychological, social and spiritual.  I have experience in a wide variety of counseling orientations (Existential, Cognitive Behavioral, Gestalt, Family Systems, Motivational Interviewing, etc.) and am currently working toward my Certified Addiction Counselor (CACII) certification and an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) certification and am pleased to offer this unique trauma therapy to my clients.  As your therapist, I look forward to helping you on your journey to wellness.
