Portrait Health Centers are multi-specialty clinics that employ the most cutting-edge and proven assessment protocols and treatment options available, believing that an Effective Treatment Depends On An Accurate Diagnosis. Individuals should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.

Over the past 8 years, I’ve gained experience in the mental health field by working in a residential treatment setting as well as outpatient mental health clinics. I’ve always been interested in the field of psychology and advocating for mental health. I earned my master’s degree from Walden University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a Specialization in Trauma and Crisis.

When treating clients, I utilize multiple forms of therapy including person-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness. Each client is unique and each approach should be tailored to what the client needs and where they are in their therapeutic journey. I understand that seeking therapy can be a scary and uncomfortable process so, I believe that creating a safe environment and forming a solid and strong rapport is essential. Once rapport is established, the client can begin to explore different issues and challenges at their own pace.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and my dog, Cole. I also enjoy art and like to paint and create glass mosaics. I love animals, music, movies, and finding humor in all of life’s ups and downs.
