Serving you through 
faith based therapy

In the vast and ever-changing landscape of therapy, my approach can best be likened to a journey through the desert. As we traverse the emotional dunes of life's challenges, I view myself as a collaborative and solution-focused guide, walking alongside you. In the vast desert of your experiences, I create a safe and nurturing oasis by allowing empathy to be our guiding star, approaching each conversation with curiosity and attunement to your unique perspectives. Like a seasoned desert traveler, I prioritize building a strong therapeutic alliance by resonating with your emotions, understanding your struggles, and fostering trust through genuine connection. Each client's path through the desert is different, so I tailor the therapeutic approach by letting you set the pace and starting point for each session. Just as a desert offers varied landscapes and hidden treasures, I strive to uncover the depth of your needs and goals, assisting you in finding your way to healing and growth in this sacred journey of self-discovery.
