I believe everyone is capable of change and growth regardless of past experiences or where one  currently is in life. I operate from a holistic approach based on the premise that our mind, body  and spirit are intricately connected and influence our mental health. I will work to understand  what you’re experiencing in your life, where you have come from, where you are today and  where you would like to be. Together we will work to reach your goal(s). 


For families, “Home” is  where we first develop our sense of self, including our self-worth and respect for ourselves.  When family life is out of balance it affects not only how we feel about ourselves but how we  feel about others and relate to them. If your homelife feels chaotic and your family needs help  putting “the heart back into home” I will work with your family as a mediator to help bring all  members back in sync together and bring harmony back into your home.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE: You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
