About Me

“We May Encounter Many Defeats But We Must Not Be Defeated.” – Maya Angelou – Gain the tools to create your best life today. I am a licensed mental health professional with a focus on trauma and parenting. I have many years of experience helping adults, families, adolescents and children with complex issues. I believe everyone has the ability to live a happy and healthy life if given the tools to overcome everyday stressors. Specialties include PTSD, depression, anxiety, low self-worth and complex parenting styles. My counseling style is person-centered with an emphasis on building resiliency. I believe in meeting people where they are with dignity and respect. I utilize EMD/EMDR and mindfulness to help clients reach their personalized goals.
