Welcome to my page at the CCC! Feeling comfortable with your counselor is perhaps the most important aspect of the journey, and my main priority when meeting someone for the first time is to make sure they feel comfortable, cared for, and welcome.
I would be honored to walk with you toward becoming the person you want to be.
Over the past ten years I have helped people just like you. Working together, we can discover who you are and why you're here. I believe God has created us all in His image for a good, meaningful purpose. I work from a family systems, somatic, and cognitive behavioral therapy orientation because thoughts, feelings, and past experiences often hold the key to our growth. Overall, I love helping people understand how to start where they are and successfully get to where they want to be. Working together will be an encouraging, uplifting experience. We will make room for humor and lighthearted moments because our time together, just like your life, can be enjoyed and make sense.
