Before even meeting you, I can tell you 3 things about yourself!

1. You have a strong desire to be heard, understood, and accepted for who you are authentically.

2. You want to be able to let go of that heavy mask that society and experience has placed on you and explore who you truly are to make sense of the world around you.

3. Most importantly, you want to be granted the freedom to shape and re-shape the beliefs that you hold about yourself and others.

How did I know those things? Because we are all connected on a deep and intimate level. We all want the same things in life, but most of us are not taught how to be our truest selves or how to trust and love ourselves. Let's unlearn the stories we have been told about who we are and how the world works to create our own unique stamp on the world. Let's change ourselves to change the world. 

I began my university studies at Kaplan University, focusing on human services after experiencing years of severe childhood trauma and abuse from my biological family. At age 30, I renounced my former life and began a self-journey to learn how to empower myself and others. I soon realized that mental health would be an amazing field to build a career based on my truest passion and purpose- to empower others. My educational background includes an associate degree in human services from Kaplan University as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees in social work from Brescia University in Kentucky. I hold a clinical social work license in the state of Kentucky.

My greatest passion is being able to walk besides others as they heal, not only themselves, but generations of secrets, burdens, and abuse. I am simply a humble guide and companion to those suffering to help remind them of their true and highest self- a person full of love, passion, and potential to create the type of life that they desire and to build strong and healthy relationships -all through the stories they tell themselves and others and developing personal/interpersonal skills.

My favorite approaches to therapy include Narrative, DBT, CBT and art/play therapy techniques. I love hands-on therapy that includes weaving in integrative tools such as meditation, mindfulness, art classes, massages, and energy-work.

I have great experience working with individuals (children, adolescence, and adults) and families with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, behavior issues (ODD, ADHD), personality disorders, OCD, and substance abuse. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families with issues related to divorce, infidelity, abuse, and unresolved issues.

Five Values that Guide My Work: dignity/worth, the power of self, compassion, accountability, and open-mindedness.
