I am Licensed Professional Counselor and National Board Certified Counselor who has worked in the hospital and high school settings for over 15 years in addition to working in private practice.
I have a Master’s degree in Human Services Counseling, and an Ed.S. degree in School Administration. I am currently completing my doctorate in Education with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction.
In addition to my counseling services, I offer coaching and consultation to parents, teachers, and school professionals.

I work with children, adolescents, and adults by using a client-centered, holistic approach to therapy.
I offer support, encouragement, and resources to help my clients achieve their desired goals for mental wellness.
In addition, I offer guidance on college, trade school, and career options for high school students and adults who are interested in making a career change.
