Waves of Courage Counseling LLC

Life is a beach...

Except, you’re left alone in the water without paddles with the waves controlling and pressuring you to every direction. At times the sea is smooth and calm. Other times you’re in a storm.

You have tried to handle it yourself because, after all, you’ve been taught to adapt and overcome with the expectation that you always have your sh*t together.

On the surface, you look fine but underneath you’re struggling to stay afloat.
You see the shore, but you’re stuck wading in this ocean current.

I’ve sailed on this ship and I’m here to tell you there’s a better way to get to shore through the unexpected tides. The decision to seek therapeutic help is never an easy one. Sometimes life can feel as if we are treading water just to keep afloat. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, or any other issues, therapy can be your lifesaver.



Meet Your Therapist

You’re here because you’re ready for change and you want to make the right decision. You’re already taking the courageous step and doing the work to find the right therapist. As a military social worker, spouse, and daughter, I understand the unique challenges the military face.

My mission is to provide counseling that is safe, accessible, and convenient to support those who serve including the men and women of the armed forces, veterans, and their family members.

Your connection with a therapist is a critical part in your healing journey. A therapist who is going to help you get through the rough waters, guide you to the safe shore, and help you find the answers you’re looking for.

Services are offered 100% online to residents living in Alaska and Virginia. As a trauma-informed therapist, I provide a safe, accepting, and non-judgmental virtual therapy space for you to access courage, discover renewed hope, and tap into your inner potential towards healing and wholeness. 

I work with ages 18 and up for those who are military and veteran connected. Other specialty areas include:

  • Healthcare workers
  • Law enforcement
  • Adult children of immigrants

Areas of focus include working with those who struggle with anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship concerns, and life transitions. You can find more on my list here. I tailor my approach using an integrative framework and utilize evidence-based treatment modalities such as:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Informed
  • Mindfulness

Whether you’re struggling with being your authentic self, a military spouse feeling lost in the ever-changing military lifestyle, or a combat veteran battling painful memories, I want to hear your story.
