Life can be difficult and recent events have made it much harder. As the Covid-19 crisis begins to end and we return to "normal" life there are still hurdles for us to navigate. Having worked as a crisis counselor at FEMA disaster centers, I helped many people work through emotional difficulties in the aftermath of a crisis. During the pandemic I offer telehealth sessions. Outside of the residual COVID-19 issues, you might just need a caring person to listen and help you navigate the hills and find refuge in the valleys of everyday life. I welcome the opportunity to help you obtain your goals.

We all have challenges from time to time, but you don't have to go through them alone. I'm here to help you use your strengths to keep what is going right, and help you find your strengths to fix when things are going wrong. I specialize in working with children, teens, young adults, and families. I bring warmth, empathy, and a touch of playfulness and creativity to my work.

Using a strengths-based approach, I support clients as they learn to accept existing circumstances. I assist clients in developing clarity and encourage identifying areas where one can grow personally to attain realistic goals. Together we embark upon a journey that often times explores the price of self-doubt, the importance of forgiveness, and the ability to develop increased faith, trust, and belief in oneself.
