About me

Each of us is made up of puzzle pieces. These puzzle pieces were formed through our life experiences. It is through life experiences we often time experiences stings. These stings go unnoticed, but it shapes those puzzle pieces that makeup who we are as individuals. There comes a time when one must address their puzzle piece in order to take control of their true self. Do you like that piece about you? Or do you want to change that part of you? Those puzzle pieces often tell a story of pain and brokenness. It is my passion and mission to come alongside those who are hurting, journeying with them towards healing. The modalities I use or Cognitive Behavioral and Humanistic Approach I have been in the Mental Health field for over 24 years. It brings me the greatest joy when someone who is struggling with a variety of issues sees the light at the end of their tunnel. They began to understand life challenges don’t come to destroy them but make them stronger and better individuals. In my work with clients, I draw from a range of interventions such as a Cognitive Behavioral and Humanistic Approach, all the while valuing the collaborative relationship so necessary for healing and growth.
I am a Christian who is a counselor. It is my belief that nothing we experience in life is a coincidence it is a part of God's divine plan. I assist people with navigating through those experiences and finding purpose in them. I provide a free judgment zone and provide a safe place for someone to be able to express themselves. God has put gifts in each individual but sometimes the static of life makes it difficult to hear God's voice to learn their purpose. It is my mission to aid in the process of you finding your true purpose for life but most of all find your passion.
