Foundation for Healing, LLC | AZ Licensed Clinical Supervisor


As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Supervisor in AZ, I have gained over 35 years of “intrinsic value” helping adults, couples, and groups, manage stress, trauma, grief, mood, thoughts, various addiction cycles, suicidality, self-harm, reentry, and life transitions.

I provide an individualized “trauma-informed” approach by meeting you where you’re at, validating your experience, empowering you to break through the barriers that may be holding you back, and walking alongside as you gain valuable tools for success. I will show you “truth” (even when it’s hard to see) and challenge your “perspective” to facilitate a strong foundation for healing.

I also serve as a Person-Centered Clinical Supervisor for persons seeking to become independently licensed therapists in the state of Arizona through individual and group supervision models. Having done my own personal work, which I believe is imperative for all behavioral health professionals, I strive for balance and wholeness for my supervisees.

Rather than listing off my extensive and varied work experience, I invite you to contact me through text or voice at: (480) 608-5250, email:, or view my website by

I provide telehealth (video/audio) services throughout Arizona M-TH, & Sa. From 8am-9:30pm, In-Office sessions on Fridays 8am-9:30pm each week, and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning sessions on a Case-by-Case basis.

(I am In-Network with most AZ Optum/United Healthcare (Regular, EAP, and AHCCCS) Health Plans, can provide a Superbill for Out-of-Network services, and I accept FSA, HSA, Credit/Debit cards, and cash as payment. I will be an approval Out-of-Network Provider with Tricare/TriWest soon. I offer a 15 minute free consultation call/video for all perspective clients so that we can both determine if it is a good match.)
