Therapist / Owner of Balanced Life Counseling, LLC

Let’s just say it –  life can be hard, unbalanced, complicated, confusing, and at times... feel a little messy. Remember: you're only human! Sometimes our 'best' simply doesn’t feel enough. I use a compassionate, straightforward approach – mixed with humor and empowerment to help you crush this thing called life! I work with individuals in-person or virtually, providing non-judgmental, unbiased, accepting, and compassionate care to address the multiple layers we have within. Counseling can be vulnerable, uncomfortable, and challenging – yet amazingly rewarding. Allow me to be alongside you while working to achieve your balance in life. 



Therapist / Owner of North Star Counseling, LLC

My goal as a counselor is to help you find balance in your life using a holistic approach. Emotional, mental, and spiritual health are all equally important. I will provide a safe space where you feel comfortable processing your emotions and where you will find motivation to grow. I have experience working with substance abuse disorders and can help you with depression, anger, codependency issues, developing healthy boundaries, grief and loss, and trauma-related issues. I utilize a variety of therapies including EMDR, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based, and solution-focused therapy.

Mental Health Therapist

Under the supervision of Melinda Rader, MS, LPC-S

Part of being human means that we all fall out of line at times whether that’s mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually or energetically. Realigning to who you were born to be is one of the bravest steps one can take. Drawing from both traditional and holistic approaches, my goal as your counselor is to hold space and acceptance for you as you navigate life’s journey and the many paths you happen to stumble upon. I am here to witness you thrive and become your most authentic self. In my office, you are safe to process your deepest thoughts and emotions while gaining the tools, empowerment and insight to do so.


I specialize in trauma-related issues, grief and loss, depression, life transitions, anxiety, and developing healthy boundaries. My practice stems from a multitude of therapeutic approaches including cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based, person centered, and strengths-based.


Normalizing the ups and downs that come with the human experience is what I'm all about. There are many benefits to seeking therapy such as growth, expansion and healing. I look forward to working with and supporting you on your journey to realignment. Please feel free to reach out via phone, text or email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
