Counseling is a collaborative process where I strive to create a safe and open environment for you to share your experiences. Areas that can be addressed through counseling include, but are not limited to grief and loss, depression , anxiety, traumatic experiences, life transitions, interpersonal conflicts, and problems with self-confidence. As we work together through the therapeutic process, we create and work toward goals that you want to achieve. We will adjust these goals to ensure that your needs are met quickly, so that you can get back to the best version of yourself.

My interests in therapy include: * Adult individual/couples counseling, * Relationship and parenting concerns, * Grief and loss, * Transitions, * Depression and Anxiety, * Questions about spirituality and religion.
People who seek help through the stresses and traumas of life instead of succumbing to them are the bravest people I know. Although therapy may not feel courageous, at some point, we all need the presence and compassionate care of someone committed to our healing process. This is my passion. I work with courageous people who choose to move toward wholeness while continuing to live and care for the responsibilities of their lives. A large part of my work is devoted to helping men and women work through traumatic experiences in the present and those remembered from the past.

I work with adolescents and adults with varying issues such as anxiety, depression , trauma, stress, relationships, self-esteem and many other mental health issues.
My passion for counseling started when one of my loved ones was diagnosed with an Anxiety Disorder. Seeing a family member suffer on a daily basis made me want to help other individuals facing similar struggles. I know that when times get hard, you may start to feel alone, but you no longer have to feel that way. As a therapist, I hope to guide and support you through the challenges that you may be facing. My role is to assist you in reaching your therapy goals by providing non-judgmental support and helping to facilitate your journey.

I have also been afforded the opportunity to treat diagnosis including: depression , bipolar disorder, mood disorder, TBI, schizophrenia, PTSD, and ADD.
I am honored to be of service to you. I know that trauma and substance abuse and addiction can wreak havoc in one's life. Many of client's find themselves faced with challenges of having to restart their lives during mental challenges and addiction; some may have to fight to regain custody of their children; many of them have co-occurring mental illness that has lead to substance abuse and/or addiction. For some, addiction comes by way of biological, environmental, and social influences, but from my experience, I have learned that mental illness was present before addiction became a factor.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
