My passion is to assist anyone who has the ability to take the first step in reaching out for help. Life is difficult at times and having someone who understands without judgment is vital in recovery and change. I have a Bachelors in Psychology & Social & Criminal Justice, as well as a Master's Degree in Social Work.

I utilize different therapy modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral, Strengths perspective, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative therapy as well as Mindfulness techniques.

Rhonda is a great Christian counselor. She listens carefully to what you say and helps gather your thoughts together with you. She's very understanding and provides support even after the counseling session is over. Every now and then she would check in to see how you are doing in between sessions. Her ability to help support you through your journey of recovery is undeniable. She has even given me a verse in the Bible for encouragement!
