About

Life has a way of beating you down so significantly that you're not sure if you can get back up again and be the person that you truly desire to be. Life's transitions, stressors, griefs can impact your self-esteem, self-worth, relationships, mental health, emotional health, spiritual health, and even your physical health. I am here to help you discover joy, peace, purpose, meaning, and love in your everyday lives that will bring you the quality of life that you deserve and is waiting for you to embrace!
I like to tailor treatment plans according to the individual and the individual's goals. I do believe in using Cognitive Behavioral techniques to help you discover/change faulty beliefs that will help change how you feel and act. I also utilize relaxed body techniques to help heal symptoms of trauma, stress, and anxiety.
The best thing that you can do for yourself is to reach out and ask for help. We were never intended to do life alone; but rather seek out wise counsel when we are struggling. There is no shame in asking for help - in fact, it shows strength and bravery to push past the fears and stand up for yourself. I am here for you and ready to help.
