Hello. I am a licensed mental health counselor working with both individuals and couples. My areas of expertise are vary due to my diverse professional experience.
I began my work in the field working for an Industrial/Organizational, Forensic, and Police Psychology practice in 2008. For over a decade in this role I have administered psychological pre-employment evaluations, career planning evaluations, and conducted assessments for fitness for duty and return to duty evaluations. I have incorporated this expertise into career coaching and professional development for individuals who are seeking guidance to improve and advance in their profession or work through a professional transition. My experience also includes work with individuals in a clinical rehab facility who were suffering from anxiety, depression, and trauma related disorders.
A safe, non-judgmental, and supportive environment is key to bringing about the change clients are seeking in their lives and relationships and creating that kind of environment in counseling is my primary goal. Additionally, I bring a breadth of training and experience that allows me to utilize a blend of approaches to counseling in dealing with a wide range of concerns. My approach is eclectic, tailored to each client’s unique needs. At the core are compassion, affirmation, exploration, and trust that help reshape emotional experience, understanding, and behavior. As a therapist, I take an integral approach, which simply means that I look at all aspects of the individual from a developmental perspective without discrimination or prejudice. I also ask my client's for feedback about the sessions so I can ensure that we are moving forward in a direction that you are both comfortable and happy with.
I know working with a new therapist can be a bit nerve wracking to say the least, but I am so proud of you taking this brave first step towards living your best life. I look forward to working with you.

I’ve had a very positive experience with Cardelia. Sessions with her have been extremely helpful for me and she is what I was looking for in a therapist!
So far Cardelia has been such a great help. I feel with her help I’m on my way to a better tomorrow!
Cardelia is the 3rd counselor I have worked with through Better Help, and she is definitely the one I have connected best with. She is warm, compassionate, and caring. She is helping me find the tools to overcome my issues, and offering the support I need during the process. I am glad to be working with her.
Cardelia is a great counselor. She’s extremely friendly and has great input, ideas, and recommendations. I always felt like she really took the time to communicate with me. She always regularly checked in with me and never made me feel judged for the things I would tell her! I couldn’t recommend her enough!
Cardelia has only been helping me for a couple of weeks but she is very professional and is helping me come to terms with my problems and anxieties. She is fast at responding to my messages and makes sure we get the most out of our sessions. I would highly recommend her.
It took me a while to find the right fit but Cardelia has been a joy to work with. She’s always checking in with me, thoughtful, and easy to talk to. Thankful for her support!
I'm only just beginning this process, but in the brief time I've talked with Cardelia she has already been quite helpful. I'm beginning to learn that dealing with my anxiety disorder is more like a marathon and not like a sprint, and that I will encounter setbacks in the future, however having someone like Cardelia to help makes me feel so much more confident going forward.
Amazing counseling, simply the best... she takes counseling to a personal and makes sure she gets you and in addition to this helps you find solutions to your problems. Cardelia has made me believe in the art of therapy and 'talking out my problems' and I'll forever be grateful for her help.
She is very kind and supportive. I felt like she listens to me and gives me good coping tools to help with challenges in life.
