I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with a Master’s of Science in Clinical Psychology specializing in Counseling through Walden University. Since graduating, I have gained experience working with individuals, couples, families, and adolescents (ages 11 years old and up).
Through my work in different professional settings, using therapy modalities of CBT, DBT, and person-centered, I provide clients with individual independence skills in order to help clients maintain their autonomy. I have developed skills in working with people who were a risk to themselves or others and needed to have a more intensive, focused treatment in order to successfully rejoin their communities and have had extensive training in crisis intervention and response.
I have developed skills in the individual therapy setting by helping people who experience challenges with trauma, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties, and individuals who have previously been diagnosed with mood disorders.
