Announcement icon I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and telehealth sessions via video for clients who are distancing or quarantined.
In today's society things are constantly changing, we as individuals are always striving to find the next best thing. I believe that there is one thing that remains constant, providing help toward those in need. My mission is to "Meet the client where they are" which means as a therapist, create a safe and trusting space where the client can be comfortable to build rapport. Working within this field, I have noticed that people want to be heard and valued. With my experience and insight, I have had the pleasure of assisting clients to begin to identify and address those places of being stuck and work towards their path of change.
Over the past several years, I have worked with populations such as children, adolescents, adults, and families. Working within these populations, I have addressed issues such as dual diagnosis, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and family conflict.
As a Christian counselor, God has given me this opportunity to be that person to provide support, compassion, and understanding to help others to overcome the hurdles of life.
