Welcome to Healing & to Hope

Finding the right therapist is critical to your journey to healing. I have been working in the mental health field since 2003 and licensed as a therapist since 2013, specializing in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to helping you!


Help for Your Life

I offer a variety of counseling services to help you move past the obstacles in your life. I will help you identify your personal values, strengths, and abilities in support of your personal and professional goals. Contact me to see how I can help you develop different perspectives and achieve the outcomes you’re striving for.


Embrace Life’s Challenges

Sometimes, it seems as if life just has it in for us and we can never catch a break. In reality, there will always be moments we have little to no control over but, what we can always control is how we react to those moments. During your individual sessions, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.


Get the Most out of Life

Making the decision to go to couple's counseling can often feel daunting.  After all, it is a big step and requires facing some tough truths about your relationship.  I believe if both persons are willing to work towards healing and willing to learn tools that can help to restore hope, the end result is a journey towards a healthier and happier future with one another!  

If you find that you and your partner/spouse are arguing more than usual, feel more disconnected, and/or there has been a violation of trust, call me now to schedule your joint session. Let's begin the journey towards a Healthy & Happy relationship!

I am also a trained facilitator in Prepare/Enrich for couples. 

Sex Therapy

Healing & Empowermemt

For so many people, sex can be a difficult topic to address. We live in the dichotomy of increased sexual liberation but let’s not talk about what that means. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to “talk about it.” A safe space to discuss concerns related to sexual functioning and sexuality without shame or guilt.  Living your best sexual life means different things to different people.  As a sex therapist, I can help you navigate your journey towards living your best sexual life and attribute meaning to your experiences while creating vision for your destination. 
Some topics of concern addressed include (but not limited to) the following:  sexual desire, sexual insecurities, past sexual abuse and the influence on current sexual desire and function, sexual identity, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, performance anxiety, and non-monogamous relationships, etc.

Group Therapy

Guidance & Inspiration

Group therapy can be powerful and transformative.  Some benefits of group therapy include: 

*Connecting with others with similar challenges;

*Easing the sense of isolation;

*Increasing ones ability to relate to others (and self) in healthier ways;

*Provides a safe space among others for authentic being and use of voice

Upcoming Groups:
