About

Hello! I work with my clients using a Cognitive Behavioral, Psychoanalytic, Solution Focused Approach. Solution Focused means we try to solve issues and problems as soon as possible. I am also a trauma specialist and have worked with military and domestic violence victims for many years. Trauma is relative to each individual and shouldn't be compared. And there are ways to heal and thrive! I also work with sexual addiction, childhood behavioral issues, depression and anxiety, chronic pain, career coaching, and all female issues. I also offer premarital and marital counseling.
We all have problems. We all go through periods of pain and confusion...None of us go through life without being thrown some curveball...It is important to have a strong support system and have someone to share your thoughts, experiences, and fears with. I offer my clients a nonjudgmental, safe place to share and heal. I would like to help you help yourself!
