About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counseling in California with over 23 years of experience in the counseling field. I have a strong faith and belief that with God by your side you can overcome anything. God never makes promises he doesn't keep. I have spent most of my career working with young people and their families. I specialize in treating people who have experienced traumatic events and who may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety. I also have experience with treating symptoms related to generalized anxiety, angry feelings, feeling hopeless or stuck, relationship issues, parenting struggles, and life transitions. I enjoy helping my clients make the changes they desire in themselves.

I am non-judgmental and provide an a counseling environment that is warm and welcoming. I use a multi-modal approach with a foundation in Cognitive Behavioral Theory and strategies. I view my clients as being in the drivers of their treatment goals and counseling outcomes. It take courage to take the first step towards becoming the best you can be and I am here to support you with every step you take.

I look forward to working with you!
