Are you ready for hope?

My approach to counseling is to find those that are ready to work on their addictions, anxiety, relationship, assertiveness and more right now. I provide a professional, safe and non-judgmental atmosphere in which to carefully assess your situation in order to discover what truly matters to you and what is getting in the way of that. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, therefore; it is important to me that you receive my full attention as we discover the best plan for your situation.

Do you feel that you are not feeling joy and happiness in the things that used to be important to you? I get that. Since I was a teenager, I have enjoyed listening to others and now as a certified sex addiction therapist and licensed clinical counselor, I have the training to help individuals improv their life.

I enjoy working with adults who need help moving towards what matters most to them. I  have over 14 years of counseling experience with individuals and families dealing with an array of mental health and addictive challenges. These challenges can be co-occurring and can negatively influence your life as well as the lives of those you love. Therefore; it is important to seek counseling now as these challenges arise.
