About LTS

There’s no denying, that life stressors are real and can feel amplified during times such as these. Occasionally, things may appear unclear; your judgment may feel clouded, and questions may arise around your purpose or existence in life. With our licensed clinical professional counselors, our approach is to meet you where you are and provide a safe, non-judgmental space in which we can explore ways to reduce your distress as you navigate through your journey. 

"My expertise involves working with individual’s experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, underlying trauma, grief, ADHD, anger management, and addiction. My therapeutic approach is integrated to include psychotherapy, CBT, solution focused, person-centered, strength based, multi-cultural, family systems, and Humanistic therapy. Each tool and technique are tailored to meet the needs of the client with the intent of leading a life of fulfillment."

"Initially I was very nervous about starting therapy and was worried that it would take me a while to open up and feel comfortable being vulnerable with a therapist. However, [Lighthouse] made me feel comfortable from our very first session. Early on I had issues with my insurance which I thought would result in me no longer being able to afford therapy but [Lighthouse] was able to offer other affordable options so I could continue my biweekly sessions. I have been under [their] care for a few months and I can already see improvements in how I feel, how I maneuver through daily challenges and how many unhealthy coping mechanisms and habits I have been able to replace with healthier ones. I have been able to apply my therapeutic homework to create daily routines that have improved my overall quality of life. [The therapist] has supported, encouraged and challenged me continuously. [Their] attention to detail and commitment to both my challenges and my victory's has been amazing. I highly recommend [Lighthouse] to anyone seeking therapy."
