Our vision and staff

About Turning Tides


When I envisioned opening the doors of Turning Tides Psychological Services, LLC, I imagined an atmosphere of intentional growth. I wanted to create a space where I could take my clients to a place where therapy would solely be based on their needs and journey to changing their path. I provide an integrative, self-tailored therapy experience.  I utilize my training and knowledge of evidence based practices to shape your journey based on your strengths and therapy goals. I also conscientiously choose each of our small group staff to fit the Turning Tides vision. Each therapist brings different talents and preferred client populations, giving us the ability to help more people reach their potential and needs. 

Opening Turning Tides has given me the opportunity to serve you first, without agendas of agencies or insurance companies. It gives me the ability to meet you where you are today and aid you in reaching your full potential to turn the tides of your story. I’m ready to take your call and see if we are a good fit for your next step.


Together, we can change the course of your story.
