My passion is to assist anyone who has the ability to take the first step in reaching out for help. Life is difficult at times and having someone who understands without judgment is vital in recovery and change. I have a Bachelors in Psychology & Social & Criminal Justice, as well as a Master's Degree in Social Work.
I understand the power of addiction, but even better I understand what it takes to recover from addiction and maintain sobriety. I utilize different therapy modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral, Strengths perspective, Dialectical Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative therapy as well as Mindfulness techniques. I will guide you in developing new techniques to overcome and conquer addiction. Some of my other specialties include overcoming low self-esteem, stress, anxiety and dealing with Grief and Loss.
Most recently I have been working with women incarcerated, assisting them with skills to cope in the world upon release from long-term incarceration. I am motivated to meet you where you are and walk alongside you to assist you in reaching your goals of recovery.

Rhonda is amazing. I look forward to all of our sessions. Looking for ways to retrain your brain, grow in awareness and knowing your own magic - Rhonda will teach you. She is a great listener, coach and cheerleader in one.

Rhonda is a great Christian counselor. She listens carefully to what you say and helps gather your thoughts together with you. She's very understanding and provides support even after the counseling session is over. Every now and then she would check in to see how you are doing in between sessions. Her ability to help support you through your journey of recovery is undeniable. She has even given me a verse in the Bible for encouragement!
