About

In today's society things are constantly changing, we as individuals are always striving to find the next best thing. I believe that there is one thing that remains constant, providing help toward those in need. My mission is to "Meet the client where they are" which means as a therapist, create a safe and trusting space where the client can be comfortable to build rapport. Working within this field, I have noticed that people want to be heard and valued. With my experience and insight, I have had the pleasure of assisting clients to begin to identify and address those places of being stuck and work towards their path of change.
Over the past several years, I have worked with populations such as children, adolescents, adults, and families. Working within these populations, I have addressed issues such as dual diagnosis, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and family conflict.
As a Christian counselor, God has given me this opportunity to be that person to provide support, compassion, and understanding to help others to overcome the hurdles of life.
