If you are experiencing any difficulties in life, one of the bravest things that you can do is seek help. I am here to help you accomplish your goals to live a happy, healthy, and successful life! Caring for others was introduced early in my life as I witnessed my family support foster youth in their homes, provide mental health services, and develop a nonprofit organization to support underserved populations - in honor of my late grandmother. I assist individuals in need of healing from depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, grief, and other mood disorders.

I have worked with a variety of clients, diagnoses, and life circumstances. I primarily see adults that cope with anxiety and depression, difficult transitions as well as problems within their interpersonal/romantic relationships. I find the work to be very rewarding and make every effort to join with each client as we work to understand how their past and present experiences contribute to their current situations. I believe that we live out cycles/patterns that begin early in our life and manifest over the course of our adulthood. It is important to explore and understand them to make changes.

Do you feel angry all the time and aren't sure why? Are you having recurring nightmares? Intrusive memories and thoughts? Do you avoid activities and places because they remind you of a painful experience? Has it been months or years and you are not getting any better? We chose to serve our country with a career in the military. We trained to be strong. What happens when, despite our best efforts, we are injured? At times we need professional guidance to maximize our recovery. I am a combat veteran, military spouse and mother.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious or isolated? I work with youth, adults and families dealing with these and other stressors. As we all navigate the "new norm" of pandemic social distancing and distance learning, it may be more difficult pay attention to our mental health needs. It can be hard for us adults but, also has taken a toll on our families/children as they have little to no time to socialize or spend with their friends. There is so much uncertainty too. It is causing our families a lot of stress. Plus , the isolation from COVID-19 is causing depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts in youth.

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.
