I believe that it is not easy navigating through life. As your counselor, it is my goal to walk with you along these roads and paths, supporting you and your family. While walking with you I will provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and caring environment. I will provide a place you can come and be yourself. I am here to support you on this incredible journey. Working with me you will find a place where you and your child can come share, and explore your unique experiences, needs, thoughts, feelings, and hopes for the future. I believe everyone has the innate tools within them waiting to be discovered. I am here to support and empower you, your child and family.
