I get to hand out hope for a living! I work with relational issues such as boundaries, pre-marital and marital counseling as well as abuse recovery. I have extensive experience with young adults in the areas of depressive disorders, identity issues and managing life's milestones. I also work with dissociative disorders and overcoming trauma. My treatment approach provides support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and change long-standing patterns that have proven self-defeating. With sensitivity and compassion I am a straightforward communicator. I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues as we set goals for where the client desires to be in life and relationships.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who enjoys educating, assisting and empowering people to achieve their goals and overcome their obstacles. Along with various eclectic ways of providing therapy I am trained in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy through EAGALA where horses are utilized in the process of recovery.
I am respectful of the spiritual beliefs of individual clients and integrate sound biblical principles in therapy when it is sought.
Some quotes I like:

" I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." -- C.S. Lewis
