I have been working in the counseling field for over 10 years and am very passionate about encouraging individuals through their own, unique journey of healing. Life is full of ups and downs and all of us experience pain. Yet, there are times the pain can become so intense that we are forced to take a time out for some undivided support and guidance! I believe the counseling relationship should be built on trust, acceptance, respect and genuine concern. There is always hope, and I am here to help you take the first step to finding it.My specialties are: depression, anxiety, marriage and family, parenting, coping skills development, women’s issues, grief/ loss, eating disorders (anorexia/bulima/bulimorexia/excessive eating), exercise addiction, alcohol/drug addictions and OCD. I enjoy working with children ages 5 and over, male/female adolescents, women, couples and families.I accept clients where they are in their spiritual walk, yet am fully trained to counsel from a Biblical perspective. Counseling is an individual experience. We are all from different walks of life trying to find answers and healthy ways to survive. The journey is where we truly grow!
