When individuals are struggling with their mental health, substance use, or other life stresses they might not always know where to go for help. My job as a therapist is to provide you with a safe space where you can separate these ongoing challenges, feel less overwhelmed, and take control of your life. We will focus on setting realistic therapeutic goals, empowerment, and not letting these challenges define who you are as a person. By working together, we can achieve stabilization to envision how you want your life to be.

The term Legacy by definition means "something of value transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past." As I reflect upon my life I noticed people who laid up for me a legacy, a promise and hope. The most influential people who have impacted my life and who established a legacy for me were my grandparents. They established a legacy, it was the legacy of care, compassion, and goodwill to mankind. I saw kindness, love, patience, meekness, faithfulness, and gentleness and these are the qualities I bring into the therapeutic relationships.

I have been in private clinical practice for 22 years. I have specifically trained to work with children, adolescents, young adults and older adults. My time is spent fairly equally working with mental health and substance abuse issues. Likewise, I have chosen to not focus on one specific age group, finding it to be more satisfying to see various aged people. I spend the most time with young adults, from ages of 16-26. I enjoy working with couples; though challenging, I can often offer a safe place for them to listen to one another.

I believe all clients possess the solutions to their problems. Therapy is a place to discover these solutions and find new ways of thinking, behaving, and feeling. Working from a systemic and insight-oriented perspective, I help clients achieve a better sense of awareness that can alter behavior and functioning. As a client-focused therapist, I strongly value the therapeutic relationship. Whether the focus is to alleviate current stress or understand life-long issues, I provide a safe, supportive, and compassionate space that allows us to develop a collaborative relationship to work towards achieving the goals of the client.

At some point during life's journey, most of us experience difficulties that would be easier to navigate with the support and guidance of a trained therapist. These difficulties may range from chronic, problematic behavioral patterns stemming from unresolved childhood issues or trauma, to difficulty coping with a current life situation or phase-of-life transition.
