About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my page. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor - I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional - II (CCTP-II) I have 17 years of experience in the mental health and substance abuse field. I have my Master's from Southern Nazarene University in Marriage and Family and counseling (MA).

I have had extensive experience with addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma counseling, and adults. I also have experience with family counseling. My approach to counseling is eclectic. My goal is to match the right approach to the right person. some of the counseling approaches I use are Client-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and experiential therapy. I help people realize their purpose as well as challenge them to be the best that they can be. Counseling is hard work at times and my goal is to guide you as gently as possible through the process.

If you are ready to start the process of healing I would be honored to accompany you in the process. Looking forward to working with you.

My first better help session was an enjoyable experience and I'd recommend the service to a friend. I'm looking forward to my next session!

Esther is fantastic. I explained to her that I did not always follow through on my previous therapists because I did not enjoy the face to face at first because I tend to hold things in, and although she did not typically use the chat option, she worked with me and so far it has been an amazing experience!

Esther is easy to talk to and provides a variety of stress management tools. Our time has been very helpful for me.

Esther seems genuinely invested in my mental health. She is extremely easy to talk to and has a great feedback. She reaches out in between appointments, and I think that is very reassuring.

In the time that I've been seeing Esther, she has been incredibly easy to talk to. She listens to what I have to say and has continued to provide useful tools and "homework" that have allowed me to change and adapt to different behavioral habits.
