My passion is working with men, couples, and families. I connect well with people and have developed a strong empathic but positive attitude toward all the people I work with. My calling and passion are to help people develop a sense of hope that life could be better, and they have what it takes to make this happen. I am also certified in counseling for substance abuse.

I enjoy assisting people with their relationships, helping them work through their past challenges and assisting them to discover that they have what it takes to have a better, healthier life spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

As alone and unique as you may feel in whatever your struggle is, there isn’t anything new under the sun that hasn’t been experienced before. The details of your story may be unique, but the feelings have been experienced by millions of people before you. Allow me the opportunity to work alongside you to unveil some effective tools and strategies that can unlock a life with not just more periods of happiness but one with peace that will last a lifetime.
