MEET YOUR SUPPORT TEAM
CLIENT SCHEDULING & SUPPORT
I am a fervent advocate of self-development, and I strive to achieve it constantly. I'm in the process of gaining my Master's in Clinical Pharmacy; while helping to support the clients of our practice.
Although I am studying medications, I recognize that healing likewise comes from expressing oneself and allowing support from others.
I am drawn to helping and supporting those in need. I currently volunteer for ministry missions, which enabled me to be empathetic and connect more with individuals from all walks of life.
MARRIAGE & FAMILY THERAPIST ASSOCIATE
Do you ever feel like you’re alone in life as if the world is resting on your shoulders? Maybe you take care of your partner and children, even your peers or pets, while no one takes care of you. It’s easy to get into a routine in life where you are always busy and consumed with responsibilities, but feel very little real connection.
I help people who feel isolated or disconnected return to themselves and those they love. I treat people of all ages, including kids, teens, and adults.
I often work with individuals struggling with addiction and military families in particular, who sometimes struggle with problems like relationships, anxiety, deployment, PTSD, and depression.
APPROVED CLINICAL SUPERVISOR
My approach to therapy and clinical supervision is a collaborative one, seeking first to listen and understand. I'm passionate about men's health intersecting with intimacy, parenting, emotional communication, and relationships. Let's unpack together how race, finances, culture, faith, and elements of social constructivism inform how we show up.....and interpret what it means to be "a man, husband or father" in your relationships.
My prime focus is ensuring clients recognize problems, understand triggers, and modify their behaviors. Perhaps this is because of some personal obstacles I’ve had to traverse and my innate understanding that where you start does not have to dictate your potential or outcome. We all have challenges or “rocks in our pockets,” as my grandmother would say.
