Clinical Director, & Licensed Counselor
Life can be complicated and stressful! You may feel overwhelmed by the events in your life and in the world and unsure about how to take the next steps towards finding solutions for change that can bring peace and stability. Seeking counsel takes strength and courage and making the decision to move forward is often the beginning of the journey toward freedom. It is my desire to walk alongside you in this process!
I am dedicated to helping others find healing and empowering them to overcome personal obstacles and improve their lives while strengthening their identity and understanding of who they were created to be. I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families understand and appreciate themselves and each other in ways that develop stronger bonds and healthy, more fulfilling relationships. I love working with blended families and I am excited to see ALL marriages move beyond surviving towards thriving as they make positive changes, regain momentum and find HOPE.
My clients find themselves heard, accepted, and at ease in an environment that gives them the ability to face the problems that led them to seek counseling without feeling judgment or criticism. Counseling is an amazing journey and collaborative process where I partner with my clients to determine their goals and find ways to achieve them.
I utilize a variety of evidence-based psychotherapy techniques as well as incorporating a biblical perspective when desired by my clients, as I strive to honor and respect them regardless of their personal belief system.
I specialize in treating complicated and complex Trauma and PTSD, OCD, Codependency, Anxiety, Depression and Bipolar Disorder. I am an EMDRIA trained Level II Certified EMDR therapist treating trauma, PTSD and phobias while also helping my clients overcome negative self-beliefs, manage their pain and enhance performance in a variety of areas. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP) and Family Systems trained therapist, I utilize EMDR, EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), Exposure Therapy, Psychodrama therapy, CBT and DBT, Mindfulness and Attachment-Focused Therapy as well as other experiential therapies to help my clients walk through traumatic life experiences towards freedom and healing.
I have been married for over 25 years and have an adult son and an adult daughter with special needs. Through God’s incredible grace, we have created a beautiful blended family and have experienced the glory of His goodness! My life experiences and perseverance through the storms have given me unique insight and the ability to empathize with my clients in a variety of difficult circumstances. My desire is to be a trusted counselor who meets people at their point of greatest need with grace and understanding in a non-judgmental space that brings comfort and peace for the journey!
Oh God I’m not who I used to be Jesus I’m not who I used to be Cause I am redeemed
Thank God, redeemed
