We all face challenges in life and need support to get through those difficult moments. Reaching out is a sign of strength and shows that you are ready to tackle the issues that have impacted you. I believe each person has the power to heal and grow and there is incredible healing power in the therapeutic process. I take a client centered approach, believing you are the best authority on you. I am here to listen, provide support, direction and guidance for whatever issues you may be facing.
I have a unique background as both a social worker and therapist. I have worked with persons who have mental health diagnosis, older adults, children and parents in foster care/adoption, victims of abuse and persons with chronic illnesses. I am accepting of individuals from diverse backgrounds and beliefs and commit to providing a non-judgmental space.
I offer free consultations and would love to help you on your journey to mental and emotional wellness. Please reach out and see what a difference professional counseling can make.
