Healing the mind one step at a time. Battling life alone leads us to making decisions that put us further into a rut or spiraling downward. Let's look at you from within to find your strength again. Let's rebuild together so you can find hope again.

I have worked with those dealing with stress, anger, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and trauma for the past 20 years. I have experience working with children, teenagers, adults, and families. My approach to therapy focuses on empowering you using treatment practices in cognitive behavior, solution focused and family systems therapy. 

I aim to provide a safe, respectful, trusted, and judgement free zone that promotes growth. I genuinely want you to see yourself in a better place than you are in right now. Allow me to join you on your journey to healing.

"I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story."

I took that step to share my experiences and I conquered my greatest fears. Being able to trust is a big step, but accomplishing fears and standing in success is a leap. How would you like to take that journey with me to rebuild, uplift, get over, move through, start over, and reach for your internal goals to be a better "YOU"? Take a chance to believe in yourself that things will get and be better. I'm open, reachable, optimistic, kindhearted and ready to help towards your journey of healing. Here's where to start….

One of the hardest things in life is letting go. We all have faced guilt, love, loss, anger, or betrayal. Change is never easy. Life is too short to be miserable, hold grudges or have regrets. My goal is for you to be free of emotional pain, able to deal with life on life's terms, and to find purpose in your work, family, friends and spirituality.

Over 12 yrs as a clinician, therapist and a substance abuse counselor, I have helped individuals, children, couples, and families individually and in a group setting find healing, forgiveness, and understanding in their distressed situations. In addition, I have trained other clinicians and provided groups to clinicians that are on the same journey.
