My approach is to meet you where you are while encouraging you to build and grow into your best self. We are all unique and no two people are the same. Therefore, my therapy is not a one size fits all. Since we require different approaches, I combine my modalities and theories to provide you the best treatment for your individual needs. I encourage you to be your own advocate while learning to connect your dots along your journey and pave your own path to a healing and serenity.
I have worked with adolescents, adults, couples, veterans, and first responders struggling with challenges related to anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, relationship issues, and substance abuse. Life can be overwhelming and at times, utterly exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through any obstacles you may face, to help you understand yourself more deeply and better cope with change. If there is one thing that I know, it is that together we can fix this and together we will find your serenity!

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, my passion is guiding and assisting clients in reaching their individual goals.
I enjoy being outside especially the beach. I love animals and have a passion for wildlife and nature. As a wife, mom, grandmother, and dog mom, I also enjoy assisting family and friends in reaching their goals.
Sit outside in the morning and drink my morning coffee, listening to the birds and watching my dogs run around.
The Help. I love the message and justice.
Boys and Girls Club, because they help children and families enjoy affordable activities.
Taking a road trip to the beach and listen to the waves.
I have 3 dogs and 1 cat. One of my favorite stories is when I was out walking my large German Shepard for a walk and a large frog jumped on his back and he jumped in the air off all four paws and ran, pulling the leash out of my hand. He turned back around and the frog was still on his back. The frog jumped off, he sniffed it and jumped again. No animals were harmed in this story but boy did I laugh for days. Moving forward, Duke my German Shepard sniffs every frog he sees and gives them their space.
