I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor, licensed in Rhode Island. and I also have national board accreditation from the NBCC giving me the NCC certification which is national board certification.
I use person-cenered theories, as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, coupled with psychodynamic (think Freud, childhood effect on your current functions, your relationships, your underlying trauma, and childhood unresolved) I do label that use of multiple theories as other therapists term as well, so my approach is very eclectic and tailored per the issue and individuals personal cultural views, as I listen and practice as culturally aware and curious if I do not share the same culture, I would still always respect you and clients of religious backgrounds. I do all types of counseling, and therapy while I was entering the field I had adults and children, homelessness, families, parent-child relational co-therapy, with a diagnosis that I would have a long list of for childhood disorders, and be trauma-focused and informed while I have worked with sexual abuse victims, and parents. I work for people who have stress, people who have self-esteem issues and those who just need someone to validate them. I am gentle, interactive, and warm. I am independently a contractor and if you work with me your see that I am genuine easy-going, and gentle in my pace and never judge anyone as this is the core of my being genuine, authentic, collaborative, warm, and at all costs upholding the ACA code of ethics when areas of challenge present in terms of right and wrong, boundaries, and professionalism.
In my profession, I am an advocate and fight for clients who have been misled or who have difficulties in life due to trauma, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Divorce, Domestic Violence, Anxiety, Depression, and a lot more. I enjoy working with anyone who is honest and can give confidence that I will uphold my practice as the best standards apply.
