Hello my name is Darcel. I am a License Professional Counselor (LPC). I am here to encourage, motivate, and challenge you towards a path to real change. I offer a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment that support the therapeutic process. Therapy is a team effort.

My expertise is inclusive of various backgrounds, cultures, and ethnic groups. I ensure confidentiality, trust, and respect to each client I serve.

She is a great therapist. She helps me through the different difficulties that I have gone through and helps me by giving me new techniques to work through my mental health conditions instead of allowing them to prevent me from being the best me I can be
