I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker (LCSW). I obtained my Master's degree from the University of Maine, Orono. I have been licensed with the state of Maine since 2015. I am a member of the National Association of Christian Social Workers (NACSW). I’ve been successfully facilitating their self-growth and counseling clients throughout the Maine Highlands to include the greater Bangor area. I am Affiliated with Health Affiliates Maine and I am credentialed with several insurance panels.
My practice treats every person as unique and provides treatment based on their individual needs. I help my clients by helping them reach their fullest potential utilizing Biblical principles combined with evidenced-based practices to identify and address obstacles that challenge their progress towards complete wellness of the whole person: Spirit, Soul, and Body.
Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With my counseling sessions, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.
Do you feel the stressors of life have beaten you down and you find yourself distraught or confused...? Do you feel out of balance and are struggling to put the pieces back together? Maybe you find yourself flashing back to an old forgotten memory or feel at times your body has a mind of its own and you do things you struggle to break the habit of doing? Some people just need insight and understanding of their own innate strengths and how to use their coping skills. Some may need to develop new skills to cope with the strong emotions. Others just require learning and gaining understanding about what has happened to them. Whatever the need, I work with you to develop a treatment made just for you. Call me and let me help you reach your fullest potential and to find balance, to navigate life's challenging paths.
We were created for connection, whether interpersonal or socially we want connection. However our coping mechanisms at times may be maladaptive preventing us from making those needed connections. Sometimes we are in need of some adjusting. Are you feeling disconnected, distant and withdrawn? Do you find yourself struggling with anxiety, depression, or anger? If this sounds like you then you may have discovered the right place.
Call me and let me help you reach your fullest potential.

Elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
