I am a Registered Mental Health Counselor with over 5 years of experience working in the mental health field. My specialty is working with children and families that are experiencing stress, anxiety, trauma, and any related issues. I have an extensive background working with Christian populations and diverse communities. Most of my field experience involved providing services in the community, working with youth or post adoption families, and guiding individuals with any traumatic life stressors that may have hindered their mental well-being. I provide a holistic approach by coming alongside my clients to explore and educate how mind, spirit, and body are interconnected. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques along with other appropriate strategies. I believe that people are free to experience change and personal growth when they have hope.
