Announcement icon We are currently accepting new clients to be seen via teletherapy.
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 and serve as a Senior Pastor for a growing ministry in Stratford. 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.

SMART Recovery Young Adults (18-25) Group

SMART Recovery is a science-based addiction recovery support group—where participants learn self-empowering techniques to aid their recovery through mutual-help face-to-face and online meetings and services. No matter what your addiction, SMART Recovery tools and techniques can help you overcome the behavior.

More about this group

SMART Recovery Family & Friends Group

This group is based on the tools of SMART Recovery and CRAFT (Community Reinforcement & Family Training). We provide resources and support for those who are affected by the addictions of a loved one and share SMART Recovery tools that can be implemented by friends and family members to help with emotional upsets, effective communication methods when dealing with loved ones, and more. Our desire is that your loved one will take on the choice to pursue their own recovery, and that you will learn ways of improving your own life.

More about this group

Teacher Support Group

At times, teaching can be demanding and stressful, as much as it is rewarding and fun. Add a pandemic and a new school year to the equation, and the stress can seem overwhelming. One of the best ways to manage stress is by talking about it with those who understand. Come join this supportive group where you will be surrounded by peers, working together to support each other and build resilience.
