Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Life is extremely difficult and overwhelming. Relationships are tough. Past hurts seem impossible to heal. No matter the difficulty you are going through, I want to come alongside to help you find your way to a place of peace and ease. The people I work with like my caring, honest, straightforward, and genuine manner. They love healing while gazing at the foothills in my 5 acre park like setting. I like working with all types of situations and difficulties. I take almost all insurances. I have a Ph.D. with extensive experience in many areas. Come heal and grow.

I have helped people heal and grow through abuse, molestation, depression, anxiety, LGBT, bipolar, parenting, grief, divorce, relationship, and many other issues. I do all types of psychological testing including ADHD, Bipolar, and Gastric Bypass evaluations. EMDR, one of the treatments of choice for PTSD and trauma, is one my expertises.
