My Approach 

Going through life with no guidance is hard enough, but having a support system in place can ease life stressors. I believe individuals should live a fulfilled life as a healthy whole person. I take an integrative, strengths-based approach to healing the mind, the physical, the spiritual, and the psychological.  I enjoy working with couples, women of all ages, LGBTQIA+, and adolescents. I am a faith (Christian) base, counselor. I have worked with Anger management, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD/trauma, and much more. My primary goal is to encourage, uplift, and build confident individuals, with a holistic approach.

 My approach is integrative and holistic, and I specialize in Relationship issues, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD/trauma and I use a variety of therapies, from mindfulness practices, DBT, CBT, CPT, positive psychology, strengths-based, meditation to yoga. I have completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
