About My Clients

My ideal client is someone who may have been hesitant about starting therapy, but has decided to take a chance. I want to remove the negative stigma attached to therapy and support my clients on their journey to growth and healing. I am passionate about helping clients find ways to process their emotions and learns ways to handle everyday stress. I tend to gravitate towards clients dealing with past trauma, depression, anxiety and grief. I want people to feel empowered.

My Background and Approach

I started my therapeutic journey as an in-home family counselor. I worked with families that were struggling with their children at home and in school. I provided support for these families by connecting them with resources and working through the struggles of everyday life. This has given me additional experience to help you in the office. I am certified in trauma, which has allowed me to support clients that are struggling as a result of past events. I want to support you as you work through your trauma and educate you on your current symptoms. There are times when you may feel that you are not normal or don't recognize that some things from your past can/will affect some of your current functioning. I am here to help you process those feelings and let you know they are normal. Overall my goal is to meet you at your needs and give you the support you need in a positive manner. Oh and I like to have a little fun.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

And we know that All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose Romans 8:28 (NKJV). This verse touches my heart and reminds me why I started my journey in the mental health field. As a Christian, I am passionate about combining faith and spirituality into therapy. I want to help people remove the negative stigma attached to seeking therapy. I love to see people grow and heal from their past and I want to be a part of their journey to feeling whole. Although we all deal with trials, having someone to talk to is essential to one’s well-being. As a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, I realize that many of us struggle in our daily lives. Whether we are dealing with financial issues, job related stress, stress from raising a family, or just life in general. There are times we may need someone to talk to or just a shoulder to lean on.
