• About Me

    As a professional counselor, my goal is to assist you to become empowered and gain full insight about yourself and your relationship with others. I provide a safe and trusting environment, maintaining a climate of warmth and respect. I recognize the need for confidentiality and am non-judgmental in my approach.
    I specialize in various trauma work (PTSD, childhood abuse, rape, combat, etc.), all types of addictions, and conflict in relationships. I run various groups (i.e. Trauma, Relationship Enhancement, and Parenting Skills Groups).
    I am also a Christian counselor. I understand the importance of my clients’ spiritual beliefs. I counsel pastors and their wives, periodically, who are human and go through struggles also.

    Extended Biography :

    I have been in this field more than 17 years, both in inpatient and outpatient settings. My therapeutic orientation tends to focus a lot on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy (or Insight-Oriented Therapy), Integrative and Eclectic Therapy, as well as Faith-Based Therapy (when appropriate). Having raised five children as a single parent while working full time, as well as completing my education in my later years, I feel that I am able to help those that are inundated with emotional turmoil.

    Role In Relation to Clients/Patients:

    Medical professionals bring their skill and knowledge to help heal one’s physical ailments; teachers bring their expertise to increase one’s intellect; spiritual leaders (i.e. pastors, priests, etc.) bring their knowledge about spirituality; whereas, professional counselors help bring insight to one’s emotional pain and behaviors which are hurting them. Healing is a multidimensional process facilitated by integrating the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional components of a person’s being.
