Most people want to live a meaningful and productive life, and yet there are many of us who feel that we cannot achieve it. When life becomes confusing and you find yourself stuck in anxiety, depression, anger, worthlessness, and hopelessness, it is time to reach out for a helping hand. I truly believe that once we develop healthy coping skills and create a plan of action for everyday life, you will be able to experience the life you desire. I have intimate experience working with individuals and families dealing with chronic illness, anxiety, depression, communication issues, substance abuse, and spiritual battles. There are solutions to the issues you are currently facing in your life. By working with me, you will be able to fully embrace peace of mind and spiritual health. Please feel free to contact me, and I will be happy to set up a consultation to discuss your questions and concerns.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

My services will begin by developing a plan of action using a dialectical behavior therapy and cognitive behavior therapy approach, which will help us heal and empower you to reach your full potential. Once our plan is in place, we will practice healthy behaviors that will provide deeper insight into how to live life to its fullest potential.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am an expert in dealing with emotional, relationship, and spiritual issues. I use an action-oriented style in my therapy sessions where I will encourage you to do more and experiment to find the right coping skills for you and this action-oriented style of therapy allows me to support you on your journey towards your therapy goals. I have experience in working with the most severe cases and no story is too much to handle which allows me to get into all the tough details of what you are going through. I enjoy creating a warm environment where you can finally feel relief when you join our session which is an improtant part of the healing journey.

My treatment methods

Christian Counseling

Integrating spiritual practices into therapy can offer a profound source of solace and strength for those dealing with mental health issues. Whether it involves exploring one's faith, mindfulness meditation, or finding a deeper sense of purpose, spirituality can provide the grounding and resilience needed to overcome mental health issues. I've seen firsthand how the incorporation of spiritual practices can help clients find meaning and hope amid their struggles.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is an integral part of my practice. It allows clients to explore the connections between their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. With mental health issues, distorted thought patterns often contribute to low mood. Through CBT, clients learn to identify and challenge these negative thoughts, replacing them with more realistic and positive ones. Over the years, I've witnessed the transformative power of CBT in helping clients break free from the vicious cycle of mental health issues

Daialectical Behavior (DBT)

I am working to becoming certified in DBT therapy and use some of the skills like mindfulness and distress tolerance as cornerstones of my practice.
