    My Mission

    “Helping you to live at the epitome of who you are.”

    I am a mind and body therapist who is passionate about what I do. Providing therapy and life coaching services is my life’s work. I am holding non-judgmental space for your healing, restoration, and renewal so that you can rebuild your life. Somatic interventions such as EMDR and Mindfulness-Based Therapy are mostly used in therapy sessions. These interventions have been proven to help you heal from traumatic experiences, whether you’ve experienced big or small traumas. Talk therapy such as solution-focused and client-centered therapy are also used. My goal is to provide you with skills to work through grief, loss, or trauma.  I also use a holistic approach bringing into balance mind, body, and spirit. I welcome clients who want to integrate spirituality into sessions whether it’s integrating your faith or helping you to discover a new spiritual path. My mission is to help you live at the epitome of who you are.
