About

Are you stressed, confused, unsure of where to turn? I'm here to help you make the most of the life you've been given! My approach to counseling is to ensure each individual, couple/family has a unique experience that works best for their current life situation. This starts with developing a therapeutic relationship that is built upon empathy, understanding and non-judgmental positive support. My hope is that I can come along side you and help remove the obstacles responsible for blocking your emotional, relational/spiritual and mental health.
As we work together, I will listen carefully, ask stimulating questions and will begin making sense of how your goals can be achieved. Relationships are life's greatest gifts, and these gifts are yours to experience through compassionate counseling! Give me a call today, I look forward to hearing from you!
I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). EMDR can help reduce the negative effects of trauma (physical/emotional/sexual abuse/PTSD) and will allow you to begin healing from those experiences.
