Empathy grows not just from our successes, but also from the shadows we've navigated. For thirty years, I wrestled with a mental health issue, a journey that deepened my understanding of the human spirit and the battles we silently fight. This personal experience, coupled with my professional background, enables me to connect on a profound level with those I serve.
Initially, my desire to create positive change led me to a fulfilling career in Human Resources. Over time, this evolved into my current role as a faith-based counselor. My mission is to support a diverse array of individuals from adolescents to adults as they grapple with both everyday challenges and more intricate concerns such as anger, anxiety, depression, stress management, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief recovery, and substance use.
I hold a deep conviction that genuine healing emerges from within. This inner strength is magnified when we embrace faith and maintain a readiness for collaboration. Recognizing that everyone has their unique battles, I incorporate a range of therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Reality Therapy. Drawing wisdom from spiritual and practical teachings of the Bible, I aim to guide individuals towards a path of hope and restoration.
In 2023, I obtained my Masters in Clinical Mental Health from Harrison Graduate School at Southwest Assemblies of God University and obtained my license in November, 2023.
I eagerly await the opportunity to join you on your journey. With resilience, faith, and focus, we can unlock our boundless potential and blossom into the incredible individuals we're destined to be.
