I am an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional dedicated to helping adults cope with depression and anxiety, heal from trauma wounds, and improve interpersonal relationships by teaching effective communication skills, and how to establish healthy boundaries.

You are the expert on you, and you already possess all the tools necessary to heal and achieve your goals! Life experiences however can cause those tools or skills to become buried. In a safe and supportive therapeutic environment my role is to help uncover your “toolbox”, remove the broken or ineffective tools, sharpen the dull ones, and add a few new shiny ones. To embark on this counseling journey several critical therapeutic ingredients are needed: safety, empathy, and trust (SET). You'll lead and I'll closely follow, serving as a skillfully trained second pair of eyes and ears.

I use an integrative approach infused with mindfulness practices to help my clients gain insight and self-awareness, which is the first step needed for healing, growth, and authentic change. For couples experiencing cracks in their foundation I focus on cementing those divides, building up your emotional bank accounts, and increasing effective communication.

There are many reasons you may be considering engaging in therapy. Therapy is work, and it takes courage to begin. Consider allowing me to create a safe, open, trusted, non-judgmental, and confidential space for you to achieve your therapeutic goals. I have been blessed to combine my life purpose and passion to successfully help others, so let's get started on YOUR SET Journey!
