About Me

As far back as I can remember, I have been a friend who was always ready to lend a listening ear. As the years passed, I discovered the joy of helping others work through difficult times which led me into this rewarding career as a therapist. I work with adolescents and adults to bring healing to the painful life experiences which cause disruption to their present. It brings me great joy to watch my clients experience freedom from the past.
