About Me

Are there times when you wish you had an unbiased or nonjudgmental person to talk to? Someone who understands or can offer suggestions navigating this thing called life? I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Anger Management Specialist (CAMS2). I am also a certified Master Life Coach in the following areas: Life Purpose, Happiness, Goal Attainment. I also hold certifications in Confidence, Cognitive Behavioral, Life Story, Health and Nutrition, and Mindfulness Life Coaching. I utilize knowledge from multiple approaches to help you accomplish the goals you set out to meet, helping you become your best self.

In the course of my career, I have worked in multiple mental health settings, including residential and partial care with individuals with chronic, severe, and pervasive mental illnesses, life change programs with individuals with problems with addictions, and Private Practice with adolescents, teens, couples and families. I offer a warm, non-judgmental, caring but, most importantly, safe environment to help you feel comfortable enough to share your goals openly. I realize it can be scary starting this journey, but I applaud you for your courage.

I look forward to walking this journey with you.
