About me

Hello!
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has been in the helping profession for over 20 years. I’ve worked at assisting individuals gain a better understanding of themselves, while addressing challenges that may keep them from moving forward in life.

My career path has been closely related to self-empowerment through the journey of self-healing. Over the years I’ve served individuals, families and couples with an emphasis on women and young adults. I’ve worked as a Director for several non-profit agencies that empowered women causes, Child Protective services, and Behavior Health Clinics.

My innate gift to organically connect with people in pain and my passion to help others thrive, along with my academic training and professional experiences has afforded me with a unique set of clinical skills to empower others in developing lifelong wholeness. I am a personal witness that everyone can change.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
