As a Psychotherapist and Integrative Trauma Recovery Trained Specialist, I treat the whole person—body, mind, and soul. Life ebbs and flows, and at times, we can find ourselves in the rapids of despair and confusion. It’s easy to fall into the trap of defining ourselves by our struggles, which only leads us to forget our true story and diminish who we really are.

You are so brave for taking this gigantic step of seeking therapy. I believe that God has led you to a path that can forever change your life if you embrace it with commitment and total honesty. As your counselor, I am here to help you with the feelings you may be having and with the changes you desire to see in your life, whether it is something others might consider small or larger-scale issues that take time to work through. We will work together to get you to a better place of healing, hope, and authentic joy.

Every moment of your life is God-defined and designed to bring out the very best in you professionally, physically, emotionally, and most important, spiritually.
