There is light out of the darkness- let me help you find it.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 15+ years of experience helping couples, families, adolescents, children, and individuals enhance their lives. I'm dedicated to strengthening and healing individuals, marriages, couples, and families.

Life can be stressful and overwhelming. Does life seem too complicated or unbearable at times? Let me hold the flashlight for you and let's walk together, so that you don't feel like you are walking alone in the darkness.

Sometimes we just need hope, confidence, and someone to listen to us, so that we can be free to express ourselves and our needs- free from pressure and judgment. I am a compassionate, understanding, nonjudgmental licensed mental health therapist that will provide you with a caring, supportive environment to discuss your feelings, daily stressors, or major life changes and goals.

My teletherapy practice utilizes reality-based, solution-focused therapy to help you identify, and navigate through any choices you want to make in order to strengthen and gain confidence in yourself, your relationships, and/or your family. Together, we can identify and set realistic, attainable life goals that can enhance your life and your relationships. In my practice, I counsel couples, families, and individuals who need help navigating through, and coping with life’s unexpected circumstances as well as, families, couples, and/or individuals that are experiencing mental health and/or relationship issues.

Reach out to me, I am ready to help you. I’m ready to be your light in the dark.
