I am a Professional Counselor who is dedicated to helping clients cope with anxiety, depression, life adjustments; and build self esteem and self awareness,

The therapy process can be challenging, but I believe that the client/therapist relationship is key for effective work and healing, and that trust is the cornerstone of any therapeutic relationship. As a therapist, it is my mission to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment filled with empathy and compassion, providing you with a space that gives you a timeout from the distractions of the world, and allows you to find your voice and empower yourself to improve your overall wellbeing. Also as a military Veteran I am knowledgable of, and able to identify with, the needs of veterans who may be seeking care tailored to them.

My role is to listen, encourage, nurture, support, challenge and guide individuals on a personal journey towards healing. I offer individual therapy for adolescents and adults, specializing in anxiety, depression, self-esteem, social skills, ADHD, anger management, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), family transitions, & relationship concerns

My desire is to meet your therapeutic requirements. I tailor my approach to my clients' individual needs and personal goals whether that be through traditional talk therapy, or the creative and exploratory nature of using expressive arts.
