Welcome to Hayes Medical Integration! Providing psychotherapy is my life's mission. During my senior year in high school, my friend was murdered by other students at the high school that he believed were his friends, and after the tragic death, school administration had a difficult time assisting the students in their grieving process. Because we were not opening up about our grief as they had hoped, administration came up with an ingenious idea to train, any of us who were interested, to become peer counselors. We went away to an off-site retreat for training to learn active listening skills and to process our own grief before being released to bring healing to our fellow classmates. It was during this retreat that I realized that this is what I was put on this earth to do-to create a safe space for others to process disturbing situations and to support them in their healing process! This has, since, been my purpose in life. I believe that everyone has a purpose in this life, and it is our responsibility to find out what it is. Allow me to utilize my 21 years of professional experience to help you find healing and purpose!
