About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapy Counselor with over 23 years of experience in the social work/mental health world. I have worked with all ages from birth to end of life, I have worked with the foster care and adoptive system; court systems; developmental life stages as well as end of life care. I have experience with divorce/separation; grief and loss; life changes and lifestyle adjustments and various relationships needs. I specialize in anxiety, mindfulness, strength based and solution focused therapy. I provide individual, couple and family therapy.
My counseling style is one of building trust with my patients; focusing in on your strengths and abilities to improve your life based on your goals. I am very goal oriented and work with you on setting your goals and then how we work to get achieve them. I encourage growth both personally and professionally, I do not believe in letting past decisions continue to affect who you are as a persona and defining the person you can become as well as helping you along the journey that therapy takes a person through. I do believe that therapy is a journey and not an overnight fix; I believe that people have to work through past hurt in order to heal for the future and I work side by side with my patient to ensure they are healing through their journey. I believe empowering patients to be successful in their future in key to our success.
I do believe that reaching out for support through therapy and counseling takes strength and is not an easy decision to make for some. I want to help each of you make that decision to improve your future for yourself, to experience success and to start to engage in a healthy and positive mindset.
I look forward to working with you.

She is very caring and there for me and always knows what to say to help me get through whatever I’m going through. And takes time to check on me.
