About me

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor I believe that self care is vital to your overall wellbeing, I have worked with adults and adolescents in the private and public sector providing a wide array of culturally diverse services. With a strong focus on helping you identify the goals you would like to achieve while improving your overall mental health and wellbeing. I can assist those who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, self-doubt, at home or in the work place. I have over 30 years experience in the social service sector. I have a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Bachelor’s in Corrections and Theology with a minor in Psychology. I understand what it means to recover from traumatic and challenging life events. My integrated therapeutic approach is Person Centered, drawing from Psychodynamic, Mindfulness Based- Cognitive Behavioral, and Whole Person Systems Perspectives. Together we will work as a team building on your strengths, working toward a healthier, happier and fulfilling life.
