Life has taught me that our experiences strongly shape our responses to the world around us. These experiences and our responses have a positive or negative impact on our quality of life, our future, and day-to-day interactions. Life is difficult, and having someone to help you navigate life’s challenges and uncertainties is essential. My goal as a counselor is to help my clients heal, grow, and achieve their personal goals via a client-centered approach. I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for clients to explore their feelings and emotions freely. I have worked with clients facing depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma, and adjustment issues. Also, I am passionate about helping clients better understand the connection between our emotional state and physical body.
I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA) and certified as a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Additionally, I am a trained EMDR therapist under the supervision of Toni Lovell, MSW, LCSW, LCAC, MAC. I’m a military veteran, love traveling, and learning about the various cultures that make our world beautiful.
I offer office-based services and would love to be a part of your story. Balance Works is conveniently located in downtown Ft. Wayne and offers free parking.
