About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and my specialty is Trauma & Resilience. I have an extensive history of serving domestic violence survivors and victims of violent crimes. I am extremely passionate about assisting individuals with effectively processing traumatic upbringings so that they can create a fulfilling future.

I strongly believe that therapy should be a personal life changing journey. My role in the process is to assist with tapping into the essence of your True Self. I do so by assisting you with asking the very difficult questions. Remember, you are the expert and I am the assistant. Therefore, the therapeutic process looks different for each client because one technique or theory does not fit all. I pull from an array of Theories ranging from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Existential Therapy and will utilize whatever I have in my toolbox to assist you.

If you are seeking a clinician that will assist with making sense of the past, seeking meaning in life, and silencing the inner critic; I am here to assist you. I am committed to helping you recognize your Personal Power, Practice Self Compassion, and Learn the Importance of Soul Care.
I looking forwarding to assisting you on the journey of discovering the essence of your True Self.
