Introduction:
Life certainly isn’t easy. Every one of us—no matter who we are—needs help at one time or another. Whether we are faced with an unexpected tragedy, terrible unforeseen circumstances, trouble coping with the stresses of daily life, struggling with over or under eating, grief following the death of someone you love, trauma after an abortion, or handling a tumultuous love or family relationship, the truth is, we’ve all been there. Why? Because we are all human. You deserve to be happy and your healing is our first step.

I have undergone so many personal obstacles, it was precisely my own tough personal experiences that became the motivation and driving force behind my desire to earn the credentials necessary to help others achieve victory and transform their lives. Upon graduating from Wayne State University with a Masters degree in Social Work (L.M.S.W) and a Graduate Certificate in Social Work Practice with Families and Couples, I was ready to work with my clients, as we embarked upon a journey of healing and life altering transformation. It was always important to me that my clients feel at ease from the very first session thus I hold the therapeutic alliance with clients in a consistent positive regard.

Life is worth living. I specialize in treating females/women. Whether struggling with daily stress, mental anguish, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, chronic pain, emotional/behavioral issues, or with restoring or creating lasting relationships, family discord, a child who is acting out, or anything in between, there’s an answer for you. I implement an individualized and humanistic eclectic treatment approach, choosing from a wide array of evidence-based techniques tailored and customized to address the specific needs of each person.


We may utilize treatment approaches such as:
•Person-Centered Planning
•Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
•Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
•Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
•Art Therapy
•Positive Psychology
•Christian Counseling
•Motivational Interviewing

Just as there are no two fingerprints alike, I also believe that no two clients are alike, and you deserve personalized attention, comfort, and kind-heartedness. Life isn’t easy, but life is worth living. Happiness starts with healing. Let’s begin.
