Professionally, I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Focused Therapies.
When people have experienced loss, trauma, abuse, chronic stress, addiction or disconnection from others they may develop unhealthy patterns of responding. We can transform many of these patterns through increasing our own awareness. We all carry the answers to our own healing within us. I seek to make working with me accessible and welcoming to all. You are invited to come as you are. I'm here for you when you are feeling stuck, limited by stigma or shame, caught in past hurts, fearful, isolated, or in need of getting back to feeling like you.

ANXIETY and DEPRESSION during this time can be overwhelming but you don't have to walk this alone. I believe ultimately, clients know what is best for themselves; however, we all need Godly wisdom and a compassionate mentor to assist in “sorting out the messiness of life”. I consider it a privilege and an honor to use my professional skills and Biblical truths to incorporate hope, resiliency, healing, and watching people create success in various aspects of their lives.

Starting or returning to counseling is rarely easy; it often means that you are facing a challenge that does not have a simple solution. Sharing what is on your mind may be a relief, but for many people, it is also anxiety provoking. Whether your concerns are present-focused or have roots in the past, we can create a space where you can process and grow through the obstacles you are facing. Areas in which I have special knowledge include trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, and life transitions. During sessions, you can expect me to express empathetic understanding, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness.

As a therapist, I believe that change happens in therapy when there is an authentic relationship that yields a safe place for people to explore and address their feelings in a non-judgmental and comfortable way. I feel I am gifted in building true connections through empathy. In my practice, I meet people where they are in life & work to ensure that client's feel valued and empowered in the therapy process. God designs people beautifully & individually. It is my desire to help each of my clients explore that within themselves and to discover the true joy that comes when we can see life in this light.

My therapy style involves meeting the clients where they are at psychologically. It is important to help the client identify what their struggles entail, and together we discover ways to reach their goals. The key is the client's perceptions and thoughts about their life. This perception influences their behavior. Together we can explore their feelings and develop workable strategies to clarify their issues. I rely on the client's strengths and insights to produce necessary support and build a healthy life on their terms. Clients gain an improved sense of their identity and a better process to attain their goals.
