My experience in social work began in hospice and an international placement in India. Upon returning home, I continued to work in hospice, where I encountered end-of-life concerns, depression, anxiety, grief , and loss . I implement a strengths-based, heart-centered, holistic, and spiritual approach that is collaborative and non-judgmental. Guided by a culturally sensitive perspective, I enjoy working with a diverse population. I empower clients to tap into their own creativity to assist in their healing journey. I blend cognitive behavioral therapy with expressive arts to help clients reach their goals.

My desire has always been to be available, assisting anyone who is hurting. You may be facing a life altering health diagnosis, perhaps an accident, loss of a job, marital problems, an addiction, parenting issues, death of a loved one, caregiving; the list is endless. Perhaps you are wrestling with issues that aren't apparent to anyone else, but they are very real to you. It is easy to feel isolated and alone.

Life stages, transitions, grief & loss , history of trauma, domestic violence, or abuse; pregnancy, postpartum depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders can all lead to difficulties coping.
Are you finding yourself feeling overwhelmed? Guilty? Ashamed? Or are you feeling anxious about making a decision? In the process of preparing for a major life change? Is one or more of your relationships struggling? Our lives can throw us some pretty uncomfortable curve balls from time to time and we get to realize we have choices. You may not know what to do with that ball now that you've caught it, and that's ok. The fact that you’re here tells me you have hope.

I have experience treating a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, grief , and life transitions.
In my sessions, I like to focus on the entire person: the mind, body, and spirit. I do provide Christian counseling if that is something you are interested in. I offer therapy with individuals, couples, and families and am happy to say that I love the work I do. When you come to my office, you will be able to share the things in your life that you are struggling with and know that what you share will be met with compassion. You will be able to let me know what you would like to talk about during each session and what you would like to get out of therapy.

My diverse areas of interest include: survivors of sexual abuse & trauma, grief & loss , personality disorders, self-esteem, depression, & anxiety.
Attempting to cope with a mental health concern is often a lonely and exhausting process. Additionally, pursuing counseling can often be a difficult decision to make, but one that I believe is worthwhile. As a counselor, my role is to help support you through your healing journey and empower you to rediscover your own unique strengths and resources as a means to promote such healing. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to share your own unique life story.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
