Works with Clients 10 Years Old through Adults

PASSION POINT: Discovering People's Inner Spiritual Being

My therapy is grounded in the belief that all things within an individual is connected. My holistic approach guides me to treat clients by helping individuals find balance among the various aspects of their life. I use a wide range of therapies in treatment. including Brainspotting, which can be very effective for clients. I have been in a counseling role with Foundations since 2016.  I have extensive experience working with community-based mental health. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, with cases across the spectrum of severity.

My Philosophy

We all need that person to help fight the storm of life together. We all need help and being able to connect on that deeper level is something I hold very valuable. I want the light and healing within to shine through for everyone that steps foot into my office. When a client walks into my office, they expect a straightforward and honest person, with no judgement, and a safe place. I’m a self-described spiritual, weird person, and I love what I do!
