About Me


Your Journey, My Passion

Join me on a journey to better your relationships, communication, and support system. We can partner together to process trauma, hurt, grief, past abuse, and betrayal. If you feel like you are running out of options, your relationships are strained, or you need a solid foundation with skills that you can use, then I commend you for taking this step. I teach couples, individuals & families science-based tools for communicating to improve your relationships and keep them strong. I also provide a safe space that is free of judgement where you can explore your past, present, and future on your own terms, at your own pace.

As your Therapist, I utilize the research based approach of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy & Attachment based therapy. My #1 priority is to support you, as you are the expert on yourself and your needs. If you are a Christian and are looking for Biblical based counseling, that is available upon request only.

Whether you are ready to face these issues head on, or you just need support, I assure you that together we can find solutions and pathways that will serve you. Take the next step and call, text, or email for a free phone consultation. I look forward to coming alongside you in this journey.
