Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC

Therapy provides a safe place for healing, growth, and finding the joy in life that may have been lost. Through a collaborative relationship, we can explore what obstacles are keeping you from reaching your full potential and identify changes you may want to make in your life.


I work in a supportive,holistic, and nonjudgmental manner. I use proven, evidence-based therapies for issues such as anxiety, depression, mood regulation, ADHD, PTSD, relationship or family conflict, health and aging difficulties, and lifestyle changes.  


I have experience helping people with recovery from legal problems, incarceration, substance abuse, anger issues, domestic violence, grief and trauma.      


I am currently accepting new patients for teletherapy and have some evening appointments available.
