Life is about relationships, and it’s my responsibility as your counselor to help you have the best relationships with other people and, perhaps even most importantly, with yourself.
Utilizing counseling modalities like CBT, Transactional Analysis, and Solution Focused, as well as spiritually based healing modalities based off scriptural wisdom (if appropriate), we will work together to create a lifestyle that will best leverage your life to create a foundation in healthy relationships. This will cultivate a ripple effect on each key area of your life — physically, mentally/emotionally, spiritually, and life purpose.
I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, couples/families, and people from wide-ranging socio-economic, cultural, and spiritual backgrounds to rework thinking patterns, behaviors, and self-talk to create a healthy life balance and an opportunity to find the fulfillment and richness that life has waiting for you. Depression, trauma, divorce, anxiety, addiction, and faith-based issues are some of the several areas of life that I work with.
