Healing from the Inside out provides a safe environment to explore issues that prevent you from living a full life. As the name implies, Healing from the Inside Out seeks to make deep and lasting changes that will empower you to take control of your life. Although I am young in spirit, the wisdom learned from 25 years of practice and time spent in special education, have taught me that therapy is not a one-size-fits all. Together, we will find the answers right for you.
VETERAN'S BEHAVIORAL HEALTH. As a highly skilled therapist with personal and professional knowledge of military culture, I am uniquely poised to provide quality counseling to service members and their families. I am honored to serve those who have served. I am a member of Give-an-Hour.
