I offer highly specialized therapy to those that  feel chronically stuck in negative  emotional and behavioral cycles and can't seem to find ways to live a fulfilled life!
Making A Decision to seek help
Beginning psychotherapy can be a difficult decision and helping individuals to address their concerns in a safe and comfortable environment is my first priority.
I offer talk therapy but also provide scientifically proven techniques and insight that bring lasting results. 
My passion is to walk alongside individuals and provide hope to those who feel hopeless and overwhelmed and to assist in the healing process of those who feel brokenhearted and want to give up on life or on themselves.
 What kind of therapy/therapeutic approach/ TALK Therapy
My main therapeutic approach is cognitive behavioral working within a values system framework, in addition to this, I am eclectic and holistic in utilizing other methods as needed. I believe this is crucial to the therapy process in order to create a therapeutic dynamic that is unique to each person who enters into treatment. Although one of my specialties is Christian Counseling, I strive to be sensitive towards those with other belief systems. My first and foremost priority is to provide therapy that is specialized to each individual that receives treatment. My desire is to see lasting hope, freedom, and restoration in the lives of my clients.
