I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor with over ten years experience helping adults, children, teenagers, couples, and families who are struggling with a variety of conflicts and problems. I utilize non-judgmental support so that clients can safely explore issues they have been unable to resolve on their own. My approach is designed to help individuals, couples and families navigate unresolved problems, conflicts, and emotional pain. My intent is to always provide a safe, compassionate, and supportive environment, so that every client may achieve a pronounced sense of peace and fulfillment in their lives and in their relationships.
