I founded and designed AnchoredInKnowledge.com in 2009. I knew that I wanted to help people learn what they didn’t know but didn’t know exactly how. After graduate school and landing an internship in a teaching hospital, I updated this website with the intention of marketing my services to only children and adolescents.
Over the past 10 years of consulting with parents, families, and caregivers and treating suffering young people internationally, I realized a strong need for navigation through the muddy waters of the mental health system. During the same time I became certified in trauma therapy. This is when I developed Anchored Child & Family Counseling.
Through the counseling relationship I strive to walk with my clients through tough times, help them explore what their challenges mean to them, and motivate them to find the faith, purpose, and peace to survive.
I am a licensed and Board certified mental health therapist working with psychological trauma, self-harm, and suicidal teens including angry, oppositional, or anxious and depressed youths.
When I’m not working with kids I am helping confused and stressed parents, families, and caregivers navigate relationships, grief, loss, and the mental health system.
I bring both personal and professional experience with challenges of living and I combine these things in my work.
I hope this practice serves as a starting point and resource for you.
