You are not judged by the height you have risen, but from the depth you have climbed  

Frederick Douglas

Licensed Social Worker (LSW)

     Torn between seeking help and holding onto comfort?  Beginning therapy feels risky for many people!  We know it is time to address the challenges we face.  While, on the other hand, we are overwhelmed with negative thoughts like what will people think? What if it doesn't work?, how can a stranger help?  Is there any hope ?

     I use a faith based, trauma- informed approach.  Using a variety of counseling techniques, filtered through a strengths-based lens, I engage each person's unique story and encourage holistic healing.  Looking at the whole picture, we explore your beliefs, motivations and experiences in order to empower you to reach goals.

     We build coping skills which can strengthen interpersonal relationships and overcome barriers.  No matter the challenges you face, positive change is available to you.  My goal is to support your brave journey of growth and healing.
