I believe that everyone can heal, grow, and thrive through therapy. I enjoy working with clients to help them process trauma, loss, and grief and to help those who are suffering from depression and anxiety. Everyone needs connection and relationships in their lives. I help my clients become aware of their own needs, emotions, and fears so that they are better able to connect with others. My own experience with grief after losing my husband in a car accident forced me to grow and learn about recovery from catastrophic loss. We all face unique challenges and tragedies in our lives. Therapy can help us to feel less alone in our pain.

It's been an amazing ride!! However, looking at me today, you cannot see my wounds and the painful journey that brought me to this amazing place. After being married for 17 years, a divorce took my life on a serious downward spiral to a very dark and painful place. I was deeply wounded and felt completely lost. I felt abandoned by those whom I thought would love and support me, forever. I was in search of love and acceptance. I didn't care about the cost, I just needed to feel loved. While in search of that love, I paid a great cost. I went looking for love in all the wrong faces and places.

I am a licensed professional counselor passionate about helping individuals overcome traumatic and adverse experiences that hinder them from living life abundantly. I believe one's heart begins to heal as the mind is silenced. Building a solid therapeutic alliance is essential to this process. I believe this is achieved by offering a warm, open, nurturing, humorous and challenging environment for healing and growth. I also use a direct therapeutic approach to cultivate growth and change when interacting with clients.

My mission through counseling is to foster hope to aid in inspiring change. I believe in the innate resilience of people to rise above their struggles. Sometimes we all need a little help to get there. I utilize a strengths-based approach to therapy, focused on resilience, empowerment, and building on a person’s current skill set. I am focused on meeting the client where they are to help them achieve where they want to be. Through compassion, challenging, and humor, I support my teen and adult clients in developing a growth mindset to reach their goals.

Does your stress come from juggling all your different roles, trying to respond to everyone’s needs while also maintaining your own sense of well-being? I bet you're pretty good at it but perhaps you are also exhausted from trying to balance your personal and professional life. You may feel overwhelmed, under appreciated, angry, lonely, or apathetic. Because it is not easy to resolve these conflicts on your own, you could benefit from counseling. Counseling can help you make small steps towards change so you can experience success with ease and confidence. Counseling can help you improve your personal and work life.
