I became a counselor after a close friend died suddenly. As part of my personal growth and empowerment, I have expanded my ability to better understand the incredible power of the indomitable spirit of the human condition and all what we are capable of doing. I enjoy working with my clients to identify and address issues that cause them discomfort, mental pain, or disruption in their lives so they can be happier, healthier, and ultimately more attuned and present in daily events, eventually leading to fulfillment and enrichment in their lives.

If you are troubled and need services, I encourage you to reach out, seek help, and know that there are warm, caring, supportive professionals  just waiting to help you start your journey.  I am one of them, and I'll be with you every step of the way.
