When you are looking for a counselor or a therapist for yourself, your child, or for family counseling, it is important to look into the types of therapy offered by the therapist, their therapeutic strengths, and most importantly that counselor's commitment to your mental health and well being. For many people, attending counseling or mental health therapy can be an intimidating idea. I would love the opportunity to serve as your therapist and guide you in your counseling journey, whether it be individual counseling, family counseling, Christian counseling, or counseling for your child.
I am a mental health therapist located in Pensacola, Florida who is driven by the desire to help individuals and families heal their wounds, develop a new relationship with their thoughts and transform their lives. I have been privileged work in therapy with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, striving to consistently provide compassionate, non-judgmental individual and family therapy. You are not alone in your challenges and you don't have to carry your burden by yourself. You deserve all the good that life has to offer, and you don't have to achieve it alone. I would love to assist you in turning off your inner autopilot and help you to reclaim your life.
