I am a Licensed Master Social Worker, currently under Clinical Supervision, Certified Family Life Educator, and Certified Grief Professional.

My philosophy of counseling begins with holistic healing that takes a person-centered approach—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual—and ends with grace as individuals become vulnerable while sharing their life journey. I believe counseling provides an opportunity for a person to explore their behaviors in a safe environment by building a therapeutic relationship, allowing the counselor to act as a facilitator, while the client discovers more about themselves and their patterns of behavior. It also encourages the client to set new goals and create healthy behaviors.
Overall, my philosophy as a therapist is to treat each person as a unique individual, worthy of acceptance, regardless of their circumstances. I desire to come alongside, challenge, and encourage my clients to find healing emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
