Our approach is Non-judging, Your Comfort is Priority
I have and guide my carefully selected Staff in a person-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed clinical approach. This approach integrates cognitive and behavioral interventions with reality-testing, psycho-education, relationship skills, and empowerment to accomplish the overall goal of developing a clearer sense of self and healthy emotional boundaries. Specific methods are tailored to your needs, preferences, and personality.
All are Welcome
I lead by example. My maturity, passion for people who are hurting, and approach of compassion, empathy, and intuitive understanding blend together to create a safe, warm, therapeutic atmosphere and relationship.
Ultimately, I believe in inspiring healing; so we model healthy, restorative relationship with clients and focus on creating a therapeutic relationship that is authentic, consistent, and increases trust. This fits with our Christian foundation, which includes our openness to discuss faith and spirituality if you wish to and as led by you.
We offer both in-person and TeleheaIth/Virtual appointments. I am Telehealth/Virtual Only. In-Person appointments are with reasonable precautions decided between you and your therapist.
Contact us. We're happy to answer your questions and talk about your concerns.
P. S. In my personal life, I am involved in my community and live with a spoiled house cat and my dog, Reesie. I take Reesie with me pretty much everywhere and enjoy dog-focused activities.
My philosophy is all should have access to
quality mental health professionals.
And that is why we offer a variety of services
