I have special interest in and extensive experience in working with young women , providing a safe environment for my clients to feel unconditional positive regard as they work through their concerns with an empathetic, understanding, strength based counselor.
You do you! As a therapist I utilize expressive arts and experiential therapies to help you examine and work through the issues you are having, and in a way that works for you as an individual. Anxiety and depression often respond well to experiential therapies. Let's dig in and get our hands dirty. I'll be right beside you! I provide counseling to individuals, families and group therapy. I offer school based services for students, and can also provide family therapy.

I enjoy working with families and children and have done so in one capacity or another for 25 years. It was while I was working in the field of addictions that I realized how the family system influences and shapes us. I joined the American Association of Christian Counselors in 1998 and like to incorporate my faith in the counseling process. I am a foster and adoptive parent, which lead to my interest in attachment and trauma issues. I provide therapy for anxiety, depression, co-dependency, sexual abuse and addictions, as well as play therapy for children with behavior problems.
