I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker and in my practice I provide a confidential, non-judgmental environment where you can feel safe to open up. I am also an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist who has experience working with all gender identities across this spectrum. As a Christian I also work with individuals who are seeking a Christ-Centered approach. My practice, however, does not exclude those who are not seeking a Christian approach, but to offer help in the most respectful way. My personal experience in my own marriage, and in raising children with special needs, have helped me to be more empathic and competent in helping people struggling with these relationships. I am also a Breast Cancer Survivor and worked with others who are going through or contemplating treatment. I am now offering HIPAA compliant telehealth for those whose insurance allows or who are self-pay. At Harmony 360 Counseling, I believe that we can work on healing the mind, body, and spirit together.

Tell me what’s going on. I am here for you. I understand that you may be going through a lot right now, and may be feeling overwhelmed, depressed, stressed, or anxious, but that is why I am here to help you. We work with individual adults of all ages (18+). We enjoys working with those in all stages of their career life whether they are just getting started, in the middle, or in retirement. Our practice areas include: Trauma and emotional safety, relationship and communication, self-esteem and shame, life and career transitions, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, stress and time management, emotional wellbeing and mindfulness.
My counseling practice is tailored to working adults with issues including relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and parenting issues. I also help those same adults manage work and life stressors and transitions, burnout, compassion fatigue, and spiritual crises.
I can assist you in providing the tools and the skills you seek in order to be able to maximize your personal best. I provide empathetic and compassionate care with a holistic approach focusing on the 360 approach of mind, body, and spirit.
