About

Currently accepting new clients as of August 1, 2022. Growth is a process. In our struggle to grow and reach our full potential we come to places where we need help. Today you are taking the first step towards hope through self awareness. It takes strength to be vulnerable and open to change. I believe that all people possess the tools to better their lives and I have been honored with the privilege to accompany others in their journey to discover their individual abilities. I look forward to working with you, where together we can locate a new place of hope and self awareness.
I provide my clients with practical tools to effect change, leading to tangible results that bring significant improvement to their quality of life. I specialize in examining how past issues impact your current ability to make healthy decisions, engage in fulfilling relationships, and increase work/home productivity and satisfaction.
I have worked for nearly twenty years with people who have lost hope. Through experience in inpatient and outpatient settings, I have an excellent understanding of psychiatric challenges including Depression, Anxiety, Dementia, Schizophrenia and Bipolar, as well as, the relational complications that arise as a result of these challenges.
