I have a total servant's heart and through various therapeutic modalities I support clients in identifying issues and fostering solutions that restore peace, confidence, & relationships. I hold four degrees including a master's in professional counseling. I specialize in treating anxiety, EMDR, couple's issues, certain traumas, helping clients find themselves, & providing Christian counseling. Client populations served range from children to seniors. You've come this far, let's journey together!

My approach is direct, yet supportive, understanding and engaged. I meet clients where they are and through skillfully interjected encouragement, motivation, and challenging, I help clients to regain a sense of control and hope as we journey together to address issues preventing you from meeting your goals and feeling at peace.

While our first session is fashioned in the style of an interview with me collecting background information, my goal is to help each client feel hopeful, motivated, and interested in returning for the next session each time we meet. I want clients to feel supported, engaged, and in control of their lives. We explore how you experience life and the events therein and we find solutions to anything that's out of place or leaving you feeling less than in any way.
