About Me

I started Purposeful Counseling to help individuals that have experienced troubling events to get back to a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. I use EMDR therapy to help with reprocessing intensive thoughts and feelings surrounding that horrific event to make it more tolerable. I endorse this therapy because I’ve gone through it personally and seen the amazing results. Christian aspects and teachings will be incorporated to enhance the healing process. I will encourage you to become your most authentic self and to live fearlessly. I want you to stop surviving but to thrive. Life is a journey and I want to help you through it.
