I am a mom, daughter, wife, sister, friend, amateur photographer, sports and fitness enthusiast, a former division one college basketball athlete as well as a former basketball coach. I believe I am blessed to have the honor and privilege to bare witness to the incredible persistence and bravery the human spirit is capable of when embarking on a healing journey.
I have the utmost admiration and respect for my clients; I have been providing services for 15 years and in that time have met many people. People struggling with depression, anxiety and self-confidence, parents of pre-teens and teens, family's repairing relationships, people searching for their life's meaning; I am honored & humbled that my clients gift me trust and allow me to walk their beautiful journey with them. This gift is one of the most precious experiences I will forever cherish. I believe in my client's resiliency and motivation to heal; when hiring me, you not only hire a professional counselor, you also hire an advocate. My focus is on your individual journey; my energy and efforts are spent meeting you where you are, not to try and move you someplace else or squeeze you into a certain therapy technique. I believe together we will design a strategy that suits your individual needs, based on your physiology and goals, to best encourage a healthier, happier and more peaceful you. Healing may not always be easy, but I guarantee it's....A Beautiful Journey!!
My own Beautiful Journey has taken me to many amazing places with many unique experiences. As a natural athlete and tomboy, I started playing sports when I was 5 years old. I played basketball through high school into a Division I college in South Carolina. Today I continue to challenge myself with intense and explosive fitness regimes as well as living a healthy lifestyle. I know the importance of having a strong, healthy body physically; as well as mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Journey's can be a roller coaster; fun one minute and scary the next, dizzying and nauseating yet freeing and stimulating. I have seen some beautiful sights, met some amazing people and learned some valuable lessons along my beautiful journey. I have laughed and cried; rejoiced and screamed.

Jax has made a huge difference in my life in the short time I've known her. Any concern I had about going to counseling has been dispelled. Jax has a way of making you feel like she's your best friend's mom who cares about you but will tell you what you need to do to deal with your feelings, and who doesn't need more of that in their life?
I came to Jax in a really terrible part of my life where I felt like everything was basically crumbling around me. I haven't had much time with her yet but I can already say that she's been immensely helpful in helping me through my anxiety. I still have a long way to go but I'm confident that I have a good guide in Jax to help me on my journey.
I am very happy with Jax as a counselor. She allows me to ramble and doesn't ignore the little tidbits here and there about things I enjoy outside of therapy topics. I look forward to telling her about the good things that are going on in my life as well as things I have problems with.
Jax was an attentive listener, offered clarity, honesty, and loving support. What more can you ask for?
Jax has been very understanding and helpful. She is genuine and caring and asks the questions that need to be asked. She is also very supportive. She always reminds me to look at what I have accomplished instead of always looking at the bad parts of the situation.
Jax gave me some very practical tools that have helped me immensely with issues that I have worked on for years. She is very engaging and will message me if I drop off the radar for a few days which is good for keeping me working on things. Highly recommend!
Though all of our interactions thus far have been through emails, I feel like Jax is a really good listener and cares about what I'm going through. She is always validating and reassuring my feelings, addressing my problems and offering support. When she gives advice I feel like it's genuine and helpful. It's a wonderful feeling to have someone so supportive be there for me.
Jax has been really proactive and positive.
Jax is wonderful and patient and just a great listener. I never feel like she's over bearing or trying to tell me what I should do, even when I just want her to. She subtly encourages me to think for myself and come up with my own solutions.
Absolutely incredible-she's extremely sweet and comforting, and knows exactly what she's talking about.
