About

Are life’s struggles causing you to feel overwhelmed, confused, distressed, dissatisfied, or alone? I can help you find hope and healing, and a way forward. I truly believe the connection between therapist and client is essential to successful therapy and connecting with my clients - is my greatest asset. I do this by providing a caring, non-judgmental, supportive presence and a listening ear. In this safe place, I come alongside adult individuals dealing with Anxiety, Depression, Co-dependency, Elder and Caregiving Issues, Life Transitions, Grief and Loss, Relationship Issues, Self-Esteem, Faith Issues and help them move forward.
My specialty is grief recovery. I use the Grief Recovery Method, an Evidence Based Process for working with grievers who have experience the death of a loved one, and any other significant emotional loss, trauma or life transitions. I provide support and tools to help grievers begin to live again. I also offer Faith-Based Christian Counseling upon request.
Often the struggles we face keep us stuck in old patterns of being that prevent us from moving forward. Yet taking a courageous first step can lead to enjoying a more authentic and fulfilling life. I meet you where you are, and I am with you every step of the way. If you are ready to begin your healing journey, please call me. —And let’s get started!
