I have over 20 years of experience working with adults, adolescents and their families who are dealing with a variety of behavioral health, alcohol and drug abuse issues.

I use a combination of techniques depending on issues presented and we will work together on both short and long term goals.
I always like to say God gave me children early in my adult life because I was meant to help children in their own life struggles. I fully believe that God has plans for us even if we do not fully understand them! When our children face struggles that we cannot understand or feel equipped to help them with, we can feel lost and overwhelmed. Children and adolescents are often placed in situation and have experiences that are out of their control.

You deserve to feel loved, valued, and worthy of what life has to offer. Sometimes getting to this place requires someone to be in solidarity with you, to help you process your thoughts, identify obstacles, embrace new behaviors, and adopt new ways of living and being. I am passionate about working with adults who are experiencing life transitions, balancing family, school, and/or work responsibilities as well as those experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, or grief. I am also passionate about working with individuals that come from family traditions that may have caused them to shy away from therapy.
I have always considered the counseling profession as a privilege which often humbles me. To enter the world of my clients and the sacred spaces of their stories, is something that I do with profound respect and admiration. The process of therapy is hard work and reserved only for those brave enough to walk that path. I wish to offer a place of safety where people can open their hearts and souls and begin a journey of change and growth.
