I believe in encouraging and empowering individuals to become the very best version of themselves. I am an ordained minister, wife, mother, grandmother, and entrepreneur.

My areas of special interests:

I utilize an integrative approach to therapy to include Person-centered, Solution Focus, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as Strength-Based interventions to adapt to the needs of individuals.
