I specialize in treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, parenting, relationships, crisis and have a history of working with individuals who have co-occurring substance use. I am passionate about providing strength-based, recovery-focused care, empowering the individual to lead their treatment and change their life. I enjoy what I do: planting seeds of hope and guiding change.

Spending time with my family, my husband and three children. I enjoy reading and crafting and leading mental health groups at my church.
I pray. Taking this time to nurture my spirituality grounds me and reconnects me to my purpose.
I go to nature, unplug, wake with the sunrise, enjoy my coffee, enjoy being in the moment.
The Giver. I am fascinated by fictional accounts of human behavior and creative perceptions of future societies.
