Let's talk... I believe that life challenges, such as relationship issues, communication problems, anger, anxiety, and depression can be managed and overcome. There is hope! There are answers! You can experience happiness in your life, again! My background as a therapist includes working with adults and adolescents who are experiencing crisis in their lives due to past and/or present circumstances. Life transitions, PTSD, bullying, self-harm, grief, unresolved relationship issues, divorce, addiction, and/or mental illness can trigger irrational thinking, negative emotions, and harmful behaviors.

I offer Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Family Systems approach to my clients. With CBT, I work with individuals to identify and explore core beliefs about (self, others and the world), thoughts, feelings, and behaviors for the purpose of change and growth. With Family Systems, I counsel the family as a unit. As an option,I offer Biblical counseling.

My hope is that my clients apply the skills they learn to overcome life challenges and experience happiness and good health. I am equipped to offer guidance in this process. In addition to meeting at the office, I am pleased to offer the option of Telehealth therapy to clients who prefer it. I look forward to speaking with you.
