About

Do you feel lost? Is everyday a chore to get through? Do you want to experience life again and feel joy? Do you want to feel heard and validated? Let me help you facilitate your own healing journey by using many different conventional and spiritual techniques, in an open and affirming space. My services include both clinical counseling and/or life coaching services, in order to help you be the best version of you and find happiness again. I am also newly trained in ART, or accelerated resolution therapy, similar to EMDR!
I hold two masters degrees: Behavioral Medicine/Health Psychology, and Human Svc/Counseling. I was a licensed therapeutic foster parent for 19 years through DCF. I worked as a case manager for 7 years fighting for the rights of my brain injured and elderly clients, and have a certification in brain injury (CBIS). I also am a Reiki Master and a medium.
You are stronger than you think you are. Too many of us do not believe in ourselves, and therefore, we hold ourselves back. Working with others and facilitating the healing journey is an honor and a privilege that I do not take lightly. Let me help you find your way, so you can believe in yourself, and live the life you were meant to live.
