I have been working in the field of behavioral health for the past 15 years. I have a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation and extensive experience in providing therapy for adults with a variety of mental health and substance use disorders (i.e. trauma, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, anger management, marriage counseling). I am also able to effectively utilize Christian/faith-based principles as requested by my clients. I offer you compassion, empathy and non-judgmental interaction as we work together to find resolutions, develop coping skills, and manage symptoms that will improve your ability to move forward in your daily life. 

I consider it a privilege to serve clients in this capacity and look forward to meeting with you.

I have immediate openings for teletherapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty.
