About me

My goal as a therapist is to help you learn skills for leading a more fulfilling and functional reality and to help you on your way to living your best life. I use an empathetic and individualized approach to help people of all backgrounds navigate life issues and stressors and make positive and meaningful changes. I work with individuals, couples, and adolescents on relationships, intimacy, parenting, life transitions, self-esteem, childhood traumas, traumatic events, and anxiety. If you need help realizing your full potential, I'll help you identify your obstacles and how to navigate them.

After many years as a pastoral counselor, I came to understand that the best way to help others heal was first to do the work myself by entering into therapy. After over 20 years of doing that work, I became a therapist to help people like you face your traumas and limiting beliefs. I know what it means to live in darkness; let me help you find your light.
