Dahlia Wellness is a therapy and wellness practice created to provide a brave, supportive space for individuals seeking safety to explore and grow in their mental health. My approach to therapy is grounded in genuine connection, empathy, and acceptance. Counseling focuses on clarifying goals, then integrating strengths and preferences with personalized and intentional interventions to move growth forward. Equine assisted psychotherapy is a clinical modality offered in person when appropriate.

The majority of my clinical work over my 15-year career has centered on treating trauma and the secondary impacts it has on self-esteem, relationships, emotional experience, and daily life. I also treat depression, self-harming behaviors, anxiety, and individuals seeking support in personal relationships and family issues. I have experience with children and adolescents and have worked within multiple systems including foster care, community agencies, school systems, and the jail system.
