MY EXPERIENCE

I entered the counseling profession to walk with hurting individuals in a way their family and friends cannot. I can empathize with clients with high anxiety since going through 7 years with a chronic illness that left me with uncontrollable anxiety. It was a wonderful therapist, who was trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), that helped me regain control of my life.

Besides my own training in EMDR and play therapy, I have experience with adults and children who have had trauma, ADHD, family issues, spiritual/church issues, and more. I employ a strong therapeutic alliance, mindfulness, and somatic experience, along with a strength-based and positive approach to address your challenges in life.

Additionally, I offer faith based counseling for those who seek it.

There’s nothing I enjoy more than helping my clients discover that hope is always available. Hope can be the light that gives you courage to start the journey of healing.
