Let's face it Christian women experience multiple situations that they do not have the tools to overcome. I help Christian women to gain the skills necessary to manage and balance life as a result of anxiety, depression, relationships, work stress, early childhood experiences, grief and loss, elder abuse, church abuse, parenting and post-partum depression. My mission is to help Christian women to understand what is happening to them. That is, I seek to help clients to gain awareness on what is causing them to stay tied to their past experiences and how these experiences are impacting their growth in their families, for their friends, in their careers and life mission. I help women to establish inner and outer boundaries and how these are crucial for growth and well-being (physically, psychologically and spiritually). Additionally, I provide counseling services to English speaking immigrants and refugees (e.g. Caribbean/West Indies) to explore their acculturative experiences in America and to learn strategies to cope. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am an Associate Professor of Counselor Education at the university (both masters and doctoral levels), where I have been training clinical mental health counselors and school counselors for the past 13 years. I also have experiences working in a university counseling center, working in church counseling ministry, and school counseling (k-12). I use my lived experiences and spirituality to empower Christian women and to help them live and grow into their full God-given potential. I want to connect with you because you have the capacity to expand and outreach into your community and make a difference in this world.

“Together, we will work on strategies that address the root cause of difficulties. We have what we need inside us. Let’s use curiosity and compassion to ask the hard questions. Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts. Through talk therapy, we can address past hurts in a safe and supportive therapeutic space free of judgment. Doing so will begin the healing process. The focus is to empower your quiet voice within to share your truth with first yourself and then others. The goal is to end historic pain by creating a more pleasant present, which allows you to live your best life.

I have over 7 years of experience working with adults, adolescents, and children in a variety of settings. Including specialized experience focused on working with survivors of domestic violence as well as Veteran and military populations.

I have a particular focus on helping people cope with the emotional and psychological effects of difficult or traumatic events. I am committed to providing compassionate and effective therapy, in a safe, supportive, and nonjudgemental space. My goal is to support my clients in developing greater self-understanding and growth, supporting change, and fostering healing. My approach to therapy is holistic, strengths-based, and trauma-informed; providing supportive talk therapy while drawing on various therapeutic modalities as appropriate. My approach centers around meeting clients where they are, utilizing a collaborative approach to identify areas of need and developing insight. We will take time to develop achievable goals for therapy and the future; together we will work toward building the skills and strategies to realize those goals. I work collaboratively with my clients to identify and further develop their strengths and resources; developing coping and problem-solving skills that will enable them to successfully navigate and manage their symptoms and live a full and meaningful life. If you are struggling with the effects of stress, depressed mood, anxiety, or trauma, or just want to be able to talk to someone in a supportive and nonjudgmental space - I encourage you to reach out for help, you do not have to face these challenges alone. Life is often full of an incredible mix of significant positives and profound challenges, often these challenges are filled with anxiety, overwhelm, or distress, that can at times, feel impossible to navigate. My goal is to help and support you while you learn to navigate these challenges and work toward healing, happiness, and growth. Please remember, as you are taking this step to connect with a therapist, while it may not have been the easiest of decisions to come to, the decision to seek help is a sign of profound strength, never one of weakness. You deserve to feel happy and well.
