I am a Licensed Associate Counselor who is dedicated to helping those in their time of need. I also incorporate Christianity in my approach because I am a firm believer God must be part of the healing process. I welcome any questions and look forward to hearing from you.

I have always wanted to be a Christian counselor and feel so blessed that I am finally in this position. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Science in Christian Counseling. I am a Certified First Responder Associate, Grief Educator Certified by David Kessler, EMDR Trained, and always looking to continue my education so I can serve my clients the best way possible. I am a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, American Counseling Association, Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Values in Counseling, and the EMDR International Association. I am currently working under the supervision of Claudia (Chloe) Cooper, PLLC, a proud affiliate of Christian Counseling Services. I offer in-person sessions in North Scottsdale and the Arrowhead area, as well as Telehealth, if you prefer.
