People are my calling. My job is to help people like you heal their lives, relationships, and families. With over two decades of experience helping tens of thousands of individuals, couples, and families, I offer empathy, a listening ear, and a healthy dose of wisdom. I am straightforward and often use humor in my practice. I believe it’s so important to be relaxed in this work. I work quickly and don’t waste time getting down to the business of healing people of all ages, backgrounds, genders, relationships, and cultures.
I’m a firm believer in the limitless possibilities for redemption through faith in Christ. I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Clinical Supervisor with extensive experience in bilingual counseling, and helping people work through anxiety, depression, women’s issues, and trauma. I understand what it feels like to go through dark, seemingly hopeless times, but I know that everything God brings you trough will shape you into all you are meant to become. Working with you is an honor, and I’m dedicated to helping you learn, heal, and grow as you work towards a future that is made new in Christ.
God blessed me with rich life experiences as a classical musical artist before mid-life. Having lived a full life before becoming a therapist, and in particular as a minority as well as being a woman, allows me to provide informed and compassionately present client care, and an added capacity to empathize with the human condition. I also have five higher education degrees that include degrees in psychology (neuroscience research focus) and clinical social work with intensive training on counselling those with life-limiting illnesses. My hope is that through counseling, you will experience God’s beauty, healing, and recovery, and ultimately a celebration of all that is in store for you in your unique personal journey hand-in-hand with our Lord. Together, let’s remind each other incessantly to keep our eyes on Jesus and “Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your path straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
My diverse background and experience gives me a unique ability to empathize with a wide variety of individuals. I am fluent in English, Spanish, and Sign Language, and I have extensive clinical experience working with patients from a broad range of ages, socio-economic statuses, and mental health conditions. With the help of Christ, I believe you can achieve healing and recovery from the pain and difficult situations you face. It would be my honor to work with you as you seek to experience wholeness and freedom in Him.
My goal during our sessions is for you to feel that you are in a safe space and can take a moment to breathe. Change and growth can be hard work, but you will not have to face it alone. Even in the darkest areas, I believe that light can be found and that together we can discover the path forward. Although it is not always easy, there is always hope. With God’s help and proven therapeutic techniques, you can overcome the things that hold you back, become empowered, and believe the truth that you are valuable and loved.
Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, an eating disorder, depression, trauma recovery, relationship issues, challenges with your child or teenager, or some other obstacle, Christian counseling can help. As a Doctor of Psychology with over 15 years of clinical experience, I look forward to working with you to find lasting relief from your concerns. With empathy, compassion, and professional expertise, I will help you discover practical, achievable steps toward a healthy, thriving life and peaceful relationships with others. Don’t let another day go by without taking the next step toward your own personal well-being.
As your counselor, I will help you recognize where your true hope and peace can be found. Whether you’re dealing with trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, or other issues, I will work with you to find healing in your own mind, heart, and soul, as well as relational healing with those around you. I have witnessed the amazing work of God in my own life and so many others, and it would be my privilege to walk with you as you seek to discover Him as your true source of lasting hope.
Knowing when it’s time to seek counseling takes wisdom, courage, and humility. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have experience in helping people who feel broken and unsure about the future. My goal is to help you seek positive change in all areas of your life. Anxiety, depression, aging, codependency, sexual abuse, and other traumas affect our relationships with those we want to love, including ourselves. I’m here to walk with you on your unique journey and welcome you to explore faith as a way to enhance your life and recovery.
Helping couples heal their relationships by first better understanding themselves is what I do as a Christian counselor. I offer you support and insight for overcoming obstacles that stand in the way of forming lasting, fulfilling relationships with others and God. Whether you’re looking for marriage or premarital counseling, together we will strive to learn more about yourself, how you affect others, and how they affect you. With this knowledge, you can learn how to make healthy choices that will help you grow in all the relationships in your life.
One of my greatest joys is to connect with people on a relational level. My multicultural background and experience enable me to relate well to numerous types of individuals. I enjoy integrating God’s Word into every aspect of life and believe that even the most dire circumstances can be transformed for good with the help of the Holy Spirit. One of my passions is to coach individuals toward reaching their personal and professional ambitions. I would love to meet with you to discuss how we can work together to achieve your aspirations.
I believe the family unit is one of the most important aspects of our society. If family bonds can be strengthened, many other issues in this world will resolve themselves. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Associate, I seek to work with families to identify needs and trigger points and provide healthy solutions grounded in faith. Counseling sessions with my clients may address the union between husband and wife, parent to child relationships, past family experiences, and other interpersonal dynamics. If you feel as if you’re stuck in an unhelpful cycle, I’ll seek to help you to find peace.
As a counselor, I seek to be sensitive to my clients’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition during any given session, following their lead to determine which direction we’ll go with our conversation. I try not to push beyond their capacity, but rather gently guide and point things out as we travel together on the path toward healing and well-being. I provide a welcoming, judgment-free zone in which clients can share their burdens and feel heard and understood. I’d love to chat with you about how you can write a new chapter in your story.

There is no “magic bullet” or easy shortcut for most of life’s problems. The degree to which we overcome such challenges is the degree to which we work on them. Christian counseling is one effective way of “putting in the work,” so to speak. If you’re looking for lasting positive change in your life, Christian counseling may be the answer. I will use my professional training and decades of counseling experience to help you overcome the concerns you face. Together and with God’s help, you can find a place of healing and peace in Him.

Many of us view ourselves as “less than” what we really are as children of God. As we meet together, I will endeavor to hold the flashlight so to speak, in order to illuminate your path so you can find healing, confidence, and a strong sense of self – ultimately enabling you to create a life worth living. With empathy, adaptability, and humility, I will listen to your story, help you find and identify the root causes of whatever issues you’re facing, and offer practical tools to help you overcome your personal difficulties and challenges.
As your counselor, I will ensure that you are heard and understood in every session. I am here to help you be the best version of yourself. My goal is to empower you to understand yourself in all aspects of your life and for you to use that knowledge to guide the path you take. I will ensure that the time we spend together is valuable and will allow you to grow as an individual and in the way in which you present yourself in this world.
