My Approach to Helping

My desire as a faith-based Therapist and Life coach is to see people navigate life's transitions and difficulties with confidence. It is a privilege to embark on the journey with people as they begin to discover their inner strengths that will help them to overcome all obstacles on their life paths. I believe we all have been provided with blueprints for our lives. Life's circumstances can cause us to lose focus, lose direction, and even lose hope in the plans we have designed for us.

I utilize a faith-based approach in my practice. It is my goal to navigate you through the seemingly hopeless situations that have come your way. We are very resilient and stronger than we can ever imagine. I am passionate about being a therapist because I want to understand when no one understands, I want to hope when there seems to be no hope, and my desire is to help you move through the clouds of fear only to see the bright rays of love shining through.

It is important for me to create a safe and supportive environment where judgment does not exist and acceptance is unconditional. It remains the highest privilege for me as a therapist to have people open up their world to me, to become vulnerable, and trust me to help them with change, healing, and growth.
