Changing lives in a positive, powerful way is what I am most passionate about; individual, couples and marital counseling is how I am able to fulfill that passion. As a young girl, I can remember being the “one” who people from all walks of life would confide in by way of sharing their difficulties and life challenges. After providing a listening ear and open heart, I was left with the joy in knowing that I was able to help. I was able to intentionally listen to the cares of their hearts and provide feedback that inspired positive change. It wasn’t until my later years in life that I realized I had been graced with several gifts: empathy, compassion, guidance and counsel. I am now able to use these gifts to help empower those who are ready for change.
I am a Woman of God, Wife, Daughter, Sister and friend. Having a sound support system has helped me become my optimal self. While I believe God has graced me with several gifts to be used to help others, those “gifts” didn’t come easy. I believe, I had to do my “own-work”. My own work meant not being afraid to ask for and seek out help when needed, overcoming my own struggles with fears and self-confidence while willing to be vulnerable and share things that were holding me back from being my best ,most authentic self.
How I Practice:
I practice from a person-centered perspective, meaning you are the expert on your life. I provide counseling tailored to meet your personal goals. When requested, I incorporate Biblical principles and scripture along with psychological theory as well as evidenced based practices. While I often counsel from a Christ centered perspective, my ultimate goal is to meet you where YOU are no matter what your spiritual preference is. I do not impose my faith onto others.
How I may help YOU:
I would like to partner with you by providing a safe environment for YOU to overcome your past struggles and present barriers. I will walk alongside you on your journey to finding a more fulfilling, peaceful and joyful life as well as healthy relationships. My goal is to possibly help you to create the life you were meant to live.
