Other Info:

I feel called by God to help people find healing and live life to their fullest potential. As your counselor, I understand that you are unique and require a plan that is tailored to your individual needs. I operate from a Christian worldview and use evidence-based interventions to equip clients in achieving their goals of wellness. I have 15 years of ministry experience and have a passion to see children, adolescents, and adults rise to their full potential. I am skilled in grief support as I have personally walked through grief and have a heart to work with those dealing with loss. My goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can unpack the difficulties of life, and it would be my honor to go on this journey with you.
