What makes you unique?
I am able to build rapport with many different types of individuals and tailor treatment plans based on their mental health history and current needs. I am also skilled with helping clients find solutions for their most difficult challenges by empowering them to think through their challenges with clarity and confidence. I am also uniquely trained to incorporate spirituality into treatment for those clients who are interested in those services.

Why do you practice healthcare?
Since I was a child, I have enjoyed being a helper. Friends and family members would come to me for advice and I was always ready to lend a listening ear. I truly love helping people find healing and feel empowered to overcome challenges in their lives.
