As a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Certified Anger Resolution Therapist, I am eager to help you and your family reach their full potential! I take an honest and realistic approach while assisting my clients and their individual needs. Through counseling, you can learn to reduce your negative symptoms and increase your coping skills! We will work to address your emotional, social, and interpersonal concerns as we develop goals that foster a more positive, supportive, and balanced lifestyle. My five areas of specializations include:

  • ·         Child & Adolescent Issues
  • ·         Anxiety & Depression
  • ·         Family & Trauma Counseling
  • ·         Grief & Loss
  • ·         Marriage and Pre-Marital Counseling

Specifically, child and adolescent behaviors can be hard for parents to decode. Therefore, I am happy to assist you if you believe your adolescent is struggling with one or more of the following concerns; ADHD, anxiety, anger management issues, conflict resolution needs, depression, impulse control, grief and loss, goal setting, self-esteem issues, self-harm, and stress management. My background is unique, in that I have had the opportunity to see how a child's social and emotional undetected needs can correlate to undesired behaviors in a school setting. I have obtained an array of experience while working with youth in the following settings:

  • ·         School counseling setting
  • ·         Behavior modification setting
  • ·         Special education setting
  • ·         Adolescent youth shelter
  • ·         Drug and eating disorder treatment facility
  • ·         Practical experience as a mother of two

In addition, I utilize a variety of counseling theories and techniques to assist my clients and their desired goals. Together we will review coping strategies, stress management, grounding techniques, mindfulness, and self-regulation to restore balance to your life. I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your full potential! I offer convenient weekend hours for all new clients to avoid interruption of your academic or work schedules.
