About me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 30 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, ADHD, anger management and using effective coping skills. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma and substance abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and putting a plan into action to make changes. I have used a combination of cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling in conjunction with taking a Christian-based approach. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
