My Story

I believe that mental health is something that affects every human being and that it can affect them in different ways. Much like physical health, which can be plagued from simple ailments such as a headache to an incurable illness, our mental health can be plagued with sadness due to a life experience such as a death to incurable mental illnesses that are dealt with each and every day. It has always been a passion of mine to assist people in finding their way through their life situations by listening to them and assisting them on their journey in finding themselves and what they want in their life. By allowing the client to walk their own journey, they are in control and determine where they want to go. I view myself simply as a guide for the times they are uncertain and their path is cloudy.

Professional Experience

Are you looking for a place where you feel free of judgment and criticism to discuss what is important to you; a place where honesty and empathy meet validation and understanding? My focus is on making my clients feel comfortable in a safe and open environment while using a combination of humor, wisdom, metaphors, and professional experience to assist clients with their journey to discover and create change.

I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples providing therapy to individuals with the diagnosis of anxiety, depression, shame, guilt, self-image/esteem, trauma, difficulty adjusting to life stress, and trauma. I use strength-based modalities in my therapeutic interventions. Using an integrative approach, I develop an individualized treatment plan to accommodate your concerns and needs

My approach to therapy involves a cognitive-behavioral approach, focusing on challenging negative core beliefs and moving into a more positive way of thinking while examining thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Using an integrative approach, I develop an individualized treatment plan to accommodate your concerns and needs.

Online Counseling

Mindfully Healing clinicians are now offering video telehealth therapy services to both new and established clients.

Counseling for Anxiety

Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Have you already tried therapy but found it ineffective? If this sounds like you, Mindfully Healing can help. Our practice offers the most effective forms of treatment, to get relief from the anxiety that you deserve. When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Counseling for New Mothers

For new moms, it can be upsetting and frightening to have feelings about motherhood that don’t seem “right.” For some women, a morning run, a healthy diet and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient enough to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with new motherhood issues can be comforting, relieving and enlightening. Therapists who have extensive education and training in post-partum disorders understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are all vital factors in understanding and alleviating postpartum symptoms.

"Mindfully Healing embraces a personal growth based model unlike a problem or deficiency based model of traditional mental health... Our clients experience this during their first session."
