I feel so honored and privileged to be entrusted with the minds and hearts of my clients. I am passionate about my work as a Licensed Professional Counselor as I feel this is my calling in life. I am here to help, heal, and empower as many people as possible.

I have created a shirt and phone case in an effort to start a conversation and break the stigma that Christians/Religious people should not seek therapy but to pray instead. GOD WORKS THROUGH THERAPISTS TOO!!! Just as one can have GOD and a can have GOD and a Therapist!! There are so many people suffering because they are instructed to pray to God for help without being provided with any practical tools. I want people to understand that going to therapy doesn't make you any less of a Christian...just like it doesn't for you to go to work to make money or Physician for medical care! God works through people and in a multitude of situations. I want people to get that clarity and understanding to improve their lives!!!
