Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, NCC, LPCC-S
Have you been struggling with finding peace of mind? Are you tired of hunting for happiness and feel like living life every day has become a struggle? Do you feel like things or relationships in your past are casting a shadow on your future? Have you forgotten or are struggling to find what is unique, special and wonderful about you? Counseling may be the answer to helping you discover who are, what you want to become and develop a plan to build a brighter future.
You are not alone. Life often seems to be unbearable while attempting to manage everything you have to do, but you are not alone. You are not stuck, there is way to process your experiences so that you are healthy, whole, and moving in a positive direction.
Do you feel overwhelmed with some of your life circumstances? Not sure where to start? As an LCSW, I take a holistic approach to mental health, with a focus on regaining connection between the mind, body and spirit. Having worked in the health and fitness industry for over 15 years, I have found the importance of addressing each area of a person’s life for complete and total wellness. Think of a wheel for a moment….If that wheel has a flat tire, bent spoke, or missing part, that wheel isn’t moving forward. If one area is out of balance, it can directly impact the rest of your wheel/life. We find balance in building resiliency.
Therapy is about making connections with yourself and others, finding your value and your voice, and being accepted and supported while doing so. Identifying that you want to make a change is the first step in creating the life you want to live. Unfortunately, just thinking of making changes can be stressful and overwhelming! Let me help you identify the roadblocks that are getting in the way of making positive change. I use a structured, goal oriented, holistic approach to break down the process into manageable steps in a supportive, nurturing environment.
As a mental health counseling intern, I am passionate to work with a wide range of individuals wanting to learn more about themselves, their stories, and make positive change towards living a better, more healthy life.
Witnessing the struggle of a child can feel lonely, frustrating, overwhelming, and discouraging. It can seem like an exhausting circle of trial and error to figure out how to help them feel better and find your own sense of balance again. You are your child's advocate and you know that they are a beautifully unique mosaic of experiences, fears, memories, emotions, and insight. Their struggles are equally complex. I seek to value and honor each child to make sure they are seen, heard, and understood in a therapeutic setting that speaks their language and hears your concern.
Suffering is an inevitable part of being human, but we do not have to go through it alone or without hope. Perhaps you're feeling anxious, depressed, stressed, or disconnected. Maybe wounds, mistakes, or abuses from your past or present are tormenting your mind and soul. Perhaps your life and faith have been rocked by a diagnosis, event, change, or struggle. You are remarkably strong for seeking support, and I reach out to you these truths: While life may feel dark at this moment, things will not always be this hard. There is hope. There is meaning. Change is possible. I would love to walk alongside you into the light.
I am a Licensed Psychologist, HSP, and Certified School Psychologist working with individuals 10 years and up that are seeking psychological wellness and mental health. Let me help you in your journey of life. Whether everyday life has become challenging, and transitions are throwing off your internal balance. Maybe your relationships need shaping up and/or strengthening. Perhaps all is well, and you just want to explore and grow more in a supportive environment. You may be seeking clarity for educational questions about your child's well being and development. All you need to do is take the first step towards A New Beginning!
Everyone struggles at some point in their life. Whatever your struggle or need is in this moment, I believe I can help. Taking the first step in your healing process begins with you and taking back control can be a difficult road. I can walk beside you on your healing journey and together we can understand the feelings and resolve some of the difficulties that are standing in the way of your happiness.

(Accepting new clients) Life is full of ups and downs as we all know. However, sometimes it seems as if there are more downs than ups, and you need help finding out where things went wrong. You are not alone on your journey of life.
You are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-belling. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By learning new techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

A wise man once said, "the hardest thing in life isn't letting go, but STARTING OVER." Are you ready to "start over and live life to the fullest?" Do you feel mentally and emotionally drained? Are you looking to start new and begin on a journey of mental healing? Well, look no further; you have found the answer... Every individual, created in the image of God, deserves to be treated with dignity and respect in a very empathetic and non-judgmental way. I am here for YOU!
I believe in a strength focused therapeutic approach, and believe each individual has the ability to enjoy a life worth living. Together, we can identify the tools needed to be successful in reaching your goals. In living and working in a military community, one learns the strengths and resiliency that develops when lives are in constant flux, and the need to keep going regardless of what change lies ahead. Whatever the goal, we can identify the best tools to help meet that goal. You have the strength, sometimes we just need to be reminded of that strength.
