The therapeutic process has been found to be challenging but what is harder to live with is less than a good quality of life. My commitment to assist my client’s can make that therapeutic process less challenging. The commitment and the client’s willingness for change can be a powerful tool to assist with the struggles of mental health. All an individual needs is enough courage to take the first step and reach out to a professional for guidance through the healing process.

I am passionate about helping individuals on their journey toward wellbeing through healing traumas, learning new skills, and making healthier choices. If you are ready to make changes and want a safe place to get started, let’s talk.
If you have not had much success so far with therapy and feel that the suggestions have not helped to shift things in your life, I may be a good fit for you. I can help you explore what is contributing to your feeling "stuck" and overwhelmed and move beyond it towards real healing. I work with children, teens, parents, adults and families. Being a parent myself, I can often bridge gaps between children and parents.

Therapy can provide you the safe and confidential space to allow for exploration, processing, and growth to occur. Together we can identify tools that can be used in your daily life that strengthen your self-worth and interpersonal relationships.
My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment in which clients are able to address their unique situations.

I can see the potential for true "health" in every individual and am positive and excited about each client. I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, an MFT license, an MA in Counseling Psychology, an MS in Secondary Ed/Business, & a BS in Fash Merch/Sciences. I was always led to the power of the mind and the cause/effect of family & other relationships on mental health. Psychology is my true calling, gift, and passion. Everyone needs to briefly uncover perceptions from the past and recognize how these perceptions can block us from living a balanced life in the present.
