About

Trauma can be an invisible wound that can affect many parts of our lives we don't even realize. I work with clients with depression, anxiety, adoption triad concerns, and trauma related issues. Change can be hard. Having the courage to reach out and discuss your inner pain and anxiety is the first step. I want to help you work through your past painful experiences, feelings of shame, and traumatic events so that you can create a new life path.
I encouraged clients to create better structure, routine, and small changes to help alleviate the stress they are struggling with. Clients find that by taking the time to reflect on self talk, behaviors, and emotional decisions helpful into shifting into a more positive perspective. I also offer coaching and career readiness.
I started my career in psychology and counseling when I experienced a suicide in my family. It gave me the courage to make changes for myself, and help people around me who were also suffering grief, loss, and depression. I'm an advocate of mental health issues, a proud adoptee, and a supporter of the arts. Please reach out to me for a free consultation.
