I utilize a collaborative approach to help my clients work toward identified goals. You are the expert on your own life, and in turn are the most important tool in your own healing process. If you're struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, grief or if you want to work through your PTSD, please reach out and schedule a session with me. I utilize several treatment modalities, including CBT, Narrative Therapy, and I take a strengths-based approach to treatment.
In addition to having a Master's Degree in counseling, I have a Doctorate in Theology. When working with clients, I enjoy a holistic approach that incorporates your life experience, your strengths and your spirituality that will support your overall wellness.
I am an empathetic, compassionate and skilled clinician who can be relied upon to provide support, encouragement, assist in problem solving and help you to reach your fullest potential.
