Announcement icon I offer teletherapy or in person sessions depending on client needs
People see counselors for many different reasons. Some folks have mental health struggles such as anxiety or depression and therefore come to therapy for treatment and help. Others come to therapy for other life problems such as relationship problems, stressful work environments, worries about their future or their kids, struggles with their faith and spirituality, or grief and loss, etc. Counseling is an investment in the betterment of your life.
As a trained therapist, I am here to listen and help you sort out your thoughts, feelings and worries. Together we can work on ideas and strategies for getting through these common life struggles to help you and your family reach your goals. I work with children, adults & families.
My therapeutic approach is person-centered, meaning that treatment is based on individual and family needs. I work with Christian and non-Christian clients. It is up to you to decide whether you want to include aspects of faith and spirituality into our time together.
