When things change inside you, things change around you.”

Author Unknown

Are you ready for a change? Do you feel disconnected from your relationships and unsure of where to turn? Are you someone who is living with hurts from your past? Are you a parent searching for a better way to connect with your child? Or, maybe you are a teen who can't seem to figure out how you fit into your world?

Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety or trauma-related symptoms, I can help you embrace mental wellness through an impactful and transformative process. I offer an accessible, affirming and safe environment for you to discover the best version of you. I provide services using an online format that is secure, convenient and tailored to your needs.

Are you ready to take the first step to a peaceful, purposeful life? Let's work together to uncover obstacles and barriers to living your best life.



I am excited about taking this journey to wellness with you! With over  24 years of experience in educational, clinical, and private practice settings, I am the founder and owner of Embrace Wellness & Counseling Services. Aside from my education and experience, I have learned lessons that are not taught in courses or training.  These "life lessons" have enabled me to embrace my roles as a devoted wife, mother and therapist without neglecting the essence of who I am and who I strive to be.  I recognize the challenges we all face while trying to manage our daily struggles.  Sometimes, we get it right, but most of the time, we need a few "re-dos".  I think recognizing that I am human and will sometimes "mess up" was the first step to reclaiming my purpose and discovering that joy is not optional.
