I work with adult (18+) and older adult populations. I am particularly skilled at and specialize in working with individuals who have experienced trauma, gender-based violence, women’s issues, grief/loss, life transitions, elderly challenges and relationship issues My clinical skills include helping people experiencing anxiety, depression abuse, mood and adjustment disorders, self-esteem issues, care-giver stress, Bipolar, ADHD/ADD, etc. I also offer the option of psychotherapy from a faith-based, Biblical/Christian perspective. Together we work not only toward developing healthy coping skills, but toward healing for a sense of purpose, contentment, and peace.

I take a calm yet effective approach to therapy, believing that when a client embarks on a therapeutic journey it can be life changing. I always seek to create a warm and nurturing environment where you can feel safe and protected. It is my goal to help you live and love your life by developing the insights and tools necessary to overcome whatever difficulties you experience. I actively listen to you with compassion and understanding as you share your story and your concerns. My approach is, growth and healing.
tailor made to you and your individual needs. This is your journey toward greater self-awareness
