“Wellness looks different for everyone and for every family. I value and integrate the unique strengths each person brings to counseling. My expertise as a counselor can help develop a safe and non-judgmental place to explore and support wellness; using practices that are known in the field of counseling to be effective and strengths-based. I enjoy working with people to navigate problems in life and I am deeply honored by the trust that is developed in the healing process. ” – Macie
I am a nationally certified and state licensed mental health counselor who specializes in helping individuals and couples to overcome challenges and mental health concerns.
