ABOUT ME

I have been in this field more than 15 years, both in inpatient and outpatient settings.

My practice focuses on general psychological issues, though trauma work, addictions, and relationship conflicts tend to be a majority of my clientele. Having experienced raising five children as a single parent, working full time, and competing my education in my later years, I am better able to help those that are inundated with emotional turmoil.


 

My Philosophy

I believe that every human being is unique and the human entity is made up of four different components: physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. They all are significantly and intimately connected. There are provisions made for every individual to reach and maintain their optimal level in each of these areas. Medical professionals bring their skill and knowledge to help heal one’s physical ailments; teachers bring their expertise to increase one’s intellect; spiritual leaders (i.e. pastors, priests, etc.) bring their knowledge about spirituality; whereas, professional counselors help bring insight to one’s emotional pain and behaviors which are hurting them. Healing is a multidimensional process facilitated by integrating the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional components of a person’s being. Each component affects one another in some way.
