I am a trauma informed, open minded counselor working at Balance Counseling & Wellness, where evidence based, holistic therapy is practiced. My progressive client centered approach is uniquely blended with a variety of techniques used to uncover the root of problems, and how these issues and your associated beliefs & feelings about them are affecting you personally and within your relationships. We will work in collaboration to reach understanding and develop commitments to create change. My client results have demonstrated with good therapy positive life changes are not only possible, they are obtainable.

Experienced assisting clients with: anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar, PTSD, addictions, relationships, couples, sex & intimacy and families dynamics. I bring the wisdom of past professional careers directed toward the service of others including: nursing, life coaching, career development, domestic violence intervention and work with addictions.
