Practice Description: As a faith-based therapist and coach, it is my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life!

I have a strong passion to see people through the seemingly hopeless situations that have come their way. We are very resilient and stronger than we can ever imagine. I am passionate about being a therapist because I want to understand when no one understands, I want to hope when there seems to be no hope, and I desire to help people move through the clouds of fear only to see the bright rays of love shining through.

It is important for me to create a safe and supportive environment where judgment does not exist and acceptance is unconditional. It remains the highest privilege for me as a therapist to have people open up their world to me, to become vulnerable, and trust me to help them with change, healing, and growth.
