As a therapist, I believe that it is in brokenness that one finds strength, and that it is in the darkest places that hope and healing emerge. My passion is helping individuals grow strong in the midst of their pain and brokenness. I am passionate about working with individuals and families who have experienced trauma and/or life transition issues, helping them to walk through the process of healing and recovery.
