Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, MA, LPCC
We all need somewhere to go when the world feels overwhelming. I have seen how having the space and tools to explore your relationships, beliefs, thoughts, and behavior patterns can create opportunities for healing and growth. I believe that this can start with a therapist, a relationship built on support, empathy, and non-judgment.
Entering counseling can be the first step toward making the changes you want or need to be the best version of yourself. As a therapist, I help you recognize your strengths and areas for improvement, and work collaboratively with you to develop a treatment plan that will help you accomplish your goals.

As your therapist, my goal would be to provide a safe, supportive, collaborative relationship with the client for growth and overall wellness. One of my primary goals is to empower my clients through awareness, education, and tools to increase self efficacy. I utilize an eclectic approach, incorporating strategies from a variety of different therapeutic orientations and incorporate these into treatment to meet the specific needs of the client. My focus is on the person's strengths and competencies by using a holistic approach to address the whole individual; emotional, physical, social and spiritual.
Life has granted me a wealth of experience with trauma, abuse, interpersonal violence, divorce, grief, power biases, biracial and multicultural relationships, spiritual/religious issues, women's issues, mood and personality disorders.
Hello! I am a licensed school counselor with the Macks Psychology Group where I provide small group counseling services to children and adolescents for ages 10-18. Groups are an effective form of solution-focused mental health support that address social skills, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress management, peer relationships, life transitions, and more. Guidance from the group leader, along with support and feedback from group members, offers an excellent and rewarding opportunity for learning and growth that helps to normalize one's own challenges in life and put them into perspective.
Everyone needs a safe place where they can process a problem or work through a difficult life transition. Whether you are dealing with grief, depression, anxiety, or wounds from your past, we can work together to bring healing to your life. It's hard work and sometimes scary to talk about painful issues, but the rewards of working through them include greater confidence in oneself, more fulfilling relationships, and joy.
Do you ruminate and often worry? Are you suffering from past or current hurts? Is your relationship filled with criticism, defensiveness, contempt or stonewalling? How aware are you of your strengths and other qualities that make you unique? Are you the author of your own life story or of someone else's? Do you want to learn how to bring the smiles and the butterflies back into your meaningful relationships? Are you ready to be a partner in a growth-centered relationship?
Some of the main issues for which individuals typically seek psychotherapy include, 1) Why are my relationships so troubled?, 2) Why have I been unhappy for so long?, 3) Why do I repeat the same problems over and over again?, 4) Is my past haunting me?, 5) How can I regain my self-respect and dignity?, 6) What is causing my symptoms such as anxiety, depression, or insomnia?, and 7) Do I need medication? In addition to these important issues, I would also ask, "Is there anything more important in your life than your psychological well-being?"

I am dedicated to working with clients grappling with anxiety, depression, trauma, women's issues and LGBTQIA concerns. My shared vocations of psychotherapist and yoga therapist/teacher enable me to take a broad view of healing. As such, I am dedicated to fostering opportunities of holistic wellness by offering evidence-based psychotherapy; and when traditional psychotherapeutic treatment is not sufficient, the embodiment of yoga may be an attractive adjunctive strategy.
Finding peace of mind during stressful times may feel impossible. Oftentimes, we seek to escape painful emotions and difficult life circumstances through drinking alcohol, gambling or illicit substance use only to find out it doesn't help to lessen the pain we feel inside.
I would be honored to join you on your life journey. Whether you are experiencing stress, feeling overwhelmed, needing support or guidance, looking for skills or tools, wanting a deeper understanding of your inner self, or just curious about exploring your purpose; we can work together to find the answers. I offer a safe, confidential, and supportive environment in which to explore, learn, and gain inner wisdom.
Pinpoint is a unique group of clinicians. We don't serve everyone. We serve those who serve others. We specialize in serving the first responder, military and veteran community with people that "get it". We are able to also treat children and work with individuals who suffer from grief and loss.
Since each of our clients is unique, we do not take a cookie-cutter approach to counseling. Our clinicians will propose a care plan after an appropriate assessment. This care plan will be based on the client’s reasons for seeking help while incorporating their personal goals and strengths.
My approach to therapy is as unique as you. I believe that getting to know you, your story, what you value, and what you find meaningful is the foundation of a strong therapeutic relationship. We work together to get to the core of the issues you’d like to address and listen carefully for the deepest voice within you to help navigate through periods of distress. I focus on helping you to face the realities and limitations of being human while also embracing your freedom to choose how to live your life, align with your values, live fully in the present, and find meaning.
Some seasons of life are joyful such as the anticipation of a graduation, getting married or welcoming a new baby. Other times we find ourselves in a season of adversity and become overwhelmed by our circumstances. Profound disappointment sets in and we grieve our lost dreams and unmet expectations. During these more difficult seasons, we may develop negative beliefs about ourselves or the world around us that cause further suffering. It is my desire as a counselor to provide a compassionate space where one can wrestle with these negative beliefs and begin to see life through a more hopeful lens.
