Announcement icon Due to the current heighten awareness and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19. I am still offering teletherapy service via Doxy.me.
We all have a story. Some of our stories leave footprints that triggers us to not be our best selves leaving us in a sunken place for various reasons. Let us admit it, life happens. In order to be a better you, I believe that healing and happiness begins within ourselves. All that means is telling your own story when you are ready is the most effective way to heal. I provide a warm and nurturing environment that will allow you to work on your innermost deep concerns and surface concerns. My approach is down to earth, non-judgmental, supportive, and honest.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have a history of working with young children, adolescents and adults for over 23 years and I am honored. I specialize in working with couples who struggle with communication concerns and disagreement within their relationship. It brings me joy to see couples’ triumph by restoring passion, respect and love.
Strategically, I have worked with adolescents, adults, and families who struggle with loss, depression, anxiety, rejection, substance abuse and life transitions. In addition, I provide faith-based counseling for those who are interested. I would love the opportunity to work with you towards getting back to living a fulfilling life of meaning and purpose.
