My mission as a psychologist is to provide clients with quality humanistic and clinical psychological services.

Storms in life are always in season and do not present a preference for who and when they attack. Some storms may be more severe than others and some may last longer than others, but the keys to weathering the storms of life are aligning with a safe protected space, processing the cause and effect of the storm, unleashing your mouth and learning the skills and tools to navigate moving forward. Whether your storm is balancing motherhood, lacking motivation, low self-esteem, school issues, behavioral challenges, goal setting, leadership, personal development or a life transition, as a team we can weather the storm together.
