I am an experienced Professional Licensed Mental Health Counselor dedicated to helping adolescents and adults living with anxiety, depression and trauma. Going through difficulties can be tremendously isolating & lonely and why individuals share each other's challenges. Life has a tendency of creating difficult situations, but together, we can be successful. Together we can ENDEAVOR TO PERSEVERE!!

At CALM Counseling & Consulting I emphasize empowerment and self-acceptance. CALM Counseling & Consulting works together with adolescents, and adults to help them stride towards controlling behavioral or emotional patterns that cause significant impairment in personal functioning, within the family, work, or school environment. This, in turn, allows for the client and therapist relationship to develop mutual trust and respect ensuring the client develops their coping skills to use them effectively.
