I am an experienced professional counselor who is dedicated to helping people heal from trauma and live a fulfilling, integrated life.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate practicing at Tree of Life Counseling, LLC. I am a graduate of Walden University and earned my master’s degree in clinical Mental Health Counseling. I believe therapeutic counseling offers space for those seeking to make intentional changes in their life. I am committed to providing specific care for each individual’s unique needs, I connect and meet my clients where they are, supporting the vulnerable moments that the process can create. My work with clients has a wholistic and integrative, strengths-based trauma-informed approach.
I am experienced in physical, emotional, and behavioral issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Parenting, Relationships, Self-Confidence, and Trauma. My areas of clinical focus are CBT, DBT, Mindfulness-based Cognitive therapy, and NVC. I do my best to match the best therapeutic intervention to each client.
I work with people of all ages and backgrounds. I have a special interest in working with young adults, parents, and women that have experienced trauma. My passion is to help clients recognize their value and discover their inner strength, create opportunities to heal, and build hope, understanding, and skills to use in their daily lives.
