A Bit About Therapy
Personalized Attention for All Your Needs
At The Hope Center for Healing, I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes in self-defeating behavior and in feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results - and with my services, I will help you achieve just that. My services are personalized to suit everyone’s needs, and I go the extra mile to provide you with all the tools you need to recover.

A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You
I absolutely love what I do! I have been a therapist for 15 years, and have enjoyed every day of it. I have the opportunity to walk with people on their journey, and see them grow stronger and become the best they can be. I use techniques, such as experiential therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, to help individuals and couples move past their limitations and understand where they have been and where they want to go.
I work with children, adolescents, and adults in my offices located in mobile and in Fairhope. I provide Individual, couple, and group counseling. My specialties are trauma, grief, substance abuse, and LGBT support. Often , I work with individuals struggling with anxiety and depression. I believe each individual and couple has the capacity to heal and grow once understanding takes place. I believe that happens in my office and I am very thankful to be a part of that journey.
