Helping Clients Thrive:
We all need to explore our fears, insecurities, and those places in your life you are not proud of. My wish is to provide a safe place to allow my clients to explore those vulnerable places and allow healing. I choose to be a therapist to help clients understand that they are valued, and they can accept themselves flaws and all. Our collaborative efforts will establish a strong therapeutic relationship focusing on goals to create healing. I am transparent in the active healing research-based approach we will use in sessions. I want to empower clients to increase coping skills, engage in healthy relationships, and learn how to manage their emotions, behaviors, and addictions. I consider it a privilege and great honor to witness people’s stories and be part of their journey.

Favorite Bible Verse:
Psalm 82: 3-4 Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy: deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
