We will partner together and embark on a journey of self-discovery, renewal and empowerment, helping you to reconnect with your true authentic self, and allow your healing to unfold.
I believe my life’s purpose is to share the gift of recovery with others, to help them find out their true authentic self, and heal their inner child.
I understand your battle. I know the internal struggle that you wish would just stop - because I’ve lived it. I have walked the journey. My story spans more than 30 years, and includes suffering through trauma, trying to cope with addiction, the darkness of depression and anxiety, and so much more.
My addictions were far more involved than the narrow perspective society holds. My healing taught me that it was a symptom of something much deeper. I've taken my experience, my education and my passion for helping people, and progressed from hurting to healing to helping. Most importantly, I love the person I am today.
I have 5+ years of experience counseling others and now work as an addiction counselor at an addiction recovery center, and helping people to heal their unresolved childhood trauma is my passionate journey
My foundational training is in trauma-focused therapy, and I utilize a psychodynamic approach in my practice
