Bozeman, MT


Our partners have the potential to be a source of joy, and they can be one of our biggest activators. Relationships can bring up a spiral of emotions from joy to fear, shame, anger, self-doubt and so much more. These emotions can all spiral instantaneously and seemingly all together. I work with EFT to slow down the spiral of emotions so that each partner begins to see their own cycle and how that plays into the bigger cycle of the relationship. I have witnessed the calming and connecting effect that EFT can have on couples.

I was born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Being born of western parents – my dad born in Unionville, MT and mother in Tulsa, OK – I felt the calling to come back to the West. I found my way to Utah and Wyoming to work for the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and other wilderness based programs. My career took a change when I decided to attend graduate school in Bozeman for Mental Health Therapy. Over the years, the folks I work with often speak to feeling emotionally safe during our sessions and having an easy connection with me. Often, I use wilderness as metaphor, as Montanans can relate to the connection and clarity that comes from our open spaces. For the last 5 years I have been working at Gallatin Psychotherapy (GPI), and am currently Senior Staff. GPI has helped to deepened my knowledge and skill with the intricacies of EFT and Internal Family Systems (IFS). I have Additional Training in EFT and am Level 3 Certified in IFS.
