I am the Founder of Serenity Wellness and Counseling Center, an award-winning holistic group practice with an emphasis on evidence-based techniques beyond just talk therapy.

It is the Life Purpose of Serenity Wellness & Counseling Center to remain committed to treating the mind, body, and spirit of each of our clients through a holistic approach to improve and support their overall wellness while empowering each individual to achieve their full potential.

We believe strongly in treating each of our clients and team members with the respect and dignity they deserve, maintaining the highest degree of confidentiality and integrity in all of our business practices.

We help take the guess work out of finding the right therapist for your care. When you call in you will be provided with a FREE consultation with one of our client care specialist who takes the time to listen to your concerns and match you with the best fit for your individual needs. Research finds, that a good counselor and client relationship is essential to helping the client connect with, remain in, and get the most from therapy.

Here at Serenity Wellness and Counseling center it is important to us to that our therapist become experts in an area of specific interest. Through specialization, our therapist work to become leaders in their areas of expertise. Counselors who follow a specialty tend to have a passion for a particular concern (ie. Marriage & family, eating disorders, anxiety, trauma). Our therapist are then able to help provide more meaningful changes and coping strategies within their areas of expertise.
