About me:

Licensed Professional Counselor

Board Certified Prof. Christian Counselor

Nationally Certified Counselor

Board Certified Prof. Life Coach

Certified Personal Trainer

Prior to entering Avila's program to receive an MS in Counseling Psychology, I was involved in lay prayer counseling and took a Christian-based prayer counseling course. I have a deep commitment to God and believe that ultimately, He is the healer. My job is to help people develop a closer connection with Him. I work from a Cognitive-Behavioral theoretical perspective based on Biblical truth. I seek God's direction in adjusting the treatment to the needs of the client. However, our sessions are planned together to include what you want to accomplish. I will honor your wishes and perspectives.
