About

Life is a series of choices. Choose happiness, peace and to be the best version of you. Finding the right therapist that you can connect with can be a challenge. I am here to help ease that anxiety. My mission is to provide a relaxing therapeutic setting that allows you to feel safe talking about your feelings. I have a passion for counseling and helping people navigate through some of life most difficult obstacles.
I have been working with families, adolescents and adults in the clinical and community setting since 2002. My therapeutic approach and training is aligned but not limited to Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused and Play Therapy. I treat children, teens, & adults struggling with coping skills , grief, trauma, & depression.
My favorite quote is “When you know better you do better”. I welcome the opportunity to assist you in the journey of healthy mental wellness.
