My clients are often dealing with symptoms associated with trauma. This may include domestic violence, marital issues, life changes, and other events. They are depressed, anxious, and unsure of where to turn. With the aid of coping skills, knowledge, and self-awareness, these symptoms can be alleviated and allow you to be your most authentic self. Many clients have goals that they wish to achieve and I work with them to accomplish those goals. Through talk therapy and proven techniques, we can work together to address any issues you are experiencing.
I work with clients of all ages, ethnicities, and sexual orientations in a non-judgmental and safe environment. With a background in trauma, I can help you alleviate symptoms associated with PTSD, depression, and anxiety; in addition to other difficulties you are encountering.
As a strengths-based counselor with multi-cultural counseling experience, I am committed to assisting all clients with achieving personal goals and resolving issues in order to improve their quality of life. All individuals deserve the best life possible, and I believe that mental health is the foundation for that.
