About me

Hello! If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely that you are struggling with something significant in your life. Finding the right person to help you through these challenges is very important. If you don't have a good relationship with your counselor, you won't make the progress you are hoping to achieve. I want to provide you with some information about me in order to help you decide if my experience and style is the right match for you.

I have been a social worker for more than 20 years and have experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. My experience began in the Family Services arena working with challenges related to Abuse and Neglect and Foster Care and Adoption. I then transitioned into Crisis Social Work in an Inpatient Hospital Setting serving those with Serious Mental Illness and their Families. A significant part of my career has been spent with the Active Duty Military and Veteran populations. I specialized as a Trauma Therapist and have been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, adoption and foster care challenges and challenges of Caregiving. The feedback I receive from clients and co-workers is that they find me to be caring and nonjudgmental, and they appreciate that I am honest and direct with them. You can expect me to walk with you through whatever difficulties you are facing and help you learn more about yourself and the way you interact with the world.

I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to participate in video sessions so that we can get to know each other better. I am also available to you via phone and text if that is more comfortable for you. I am available to various time zones with morning appointments, evening availability as well as weekend availability. I check messages several times during the day and will get back with you.

I know how hard it can be to find a counselor with whom you feel a connection. I would be honored to work with you through this stage of your life.

Written on Jan 09, 2023 after therapy with Dolores for 1 year and 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Despite being in the healthcare field, I was terrified to take the step of initiating counseling. There were many things that had held me back from getting the help I needed for far too long. I was paired up with Dolores and quickly found there was nothing to fear. We started out chatting on the computer for our sessions. Soon it progressed to telephone calls and before I knew it we were video chatting. She challenged me and held me accountable, but never made me feel pressured or embarrassed over anything that I brought to the session. It simply was what it was and we would pick at it, decipher it, and work on it together. There were many tears but also many victories and laughs. It brought great comfort knowing I wasn't alone, no answer was a wrong answer, and I had someone to help me process things. Over time I began to grow in ways I never imagined. I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been, and I feel as though I can take on whatever may be thrown my way. I can also stand firm on the knowledge that she is there to help if it becomes too much or I simply can't see my way through it. Dolores has been a game changer for me. I cannot say enough about Better Help but more so about Dolores. I will be forever thankful I faced my fears and I took the leap of faith.

Dolores is a life saver! She has been helping me navigate after an unwanted divorce and I don’t know how I would do this without her - I am so grateful to have her as my therapist

Dolores has been a wonderful therapist! She cuts to the show when it comes my problems as I've been prone making a lot of excuses for a lot of things over the years. She's wonderful and I recommend her to everyone I know!

Written on Jun 15, 2022 after therapy with Dolores for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and sleeping disorders

Delores is wonderful. She listens well and offers pertinent advice.

Written on Jun 14, 2022 after therapy with Dolores for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and sleeping disorders

I've been to a few therapists over the years and then stopped going because I felt it wasn't really getting to the source of my challenges. Dolores has helped me so much, even at the very first session! She provides feedback and insight that helps me understand why I have certain issues and provides solutions on how to address and overcome them. I believe her experience is a huge benefit. She is amazing and I am incredibly thankful to have found her!!!!

Dolores has been wonderful to work with.

Written on Feb 14, 2022 after therapy with Dolores for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Dolores is an outstanding therapist. It truly amazes me during each session how much she prioritizes me. She knows exactly when to talk and when to listen. She has so much knowledge about every topic I have brought up. I cannot put into words how good I feel after each session. She challenges me enough, but also leaves my feeling positive. I would recommend her to anyone seeking help.

Written on Jan 22, 2022 after therapy with Dolores for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

I think we all need someone at times to talk to. Between the Covid Pandemic, knowing that I wanted to be less defensive in my life, and a health scare Dolores helped me tremendously. I know I love my husband and want to stay connected with him, and Delores gave me many suggestions to help that improve as well. I highly recommend her.

Written on Dec 09, 2021 after therapy with Dolores for 3 weeks on issues concerning self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Dolores is a great therapist to work with! As someone who is participating in therapy for the first time, she makes me feel really comfortable. She helps me to figure out why am I seeking therapy when sometimes that question can be hard to answer. Dolores gets that life happens and that it looks different for everyone. Dolores has been great at helping me to make sense of situations, process my feelings, and to accept things that I cannot change.

Written on Dec 08, 2021 after therapy with Dolores for 4 months on issues concerning depression

Dolores has been a lovely person to talk to each week. She focuses not on what's holding me back as much as how I can move forward. She's been a motivating influence in my life when I needed one and has helped me see myself a bit more clearly.

I was beyond impressed with my being matched with Dolores. She has expertise in the areas I am struggling and then some! I feel well listened to, taken care of, and honored to learn from her. I would recommend her to a friend, family member, or a therapist looking to understand holistic approaches to counseling. I appreciate that my physical, mental, and emotional states are understood.

Written on Aug 24, 2020 after therapy with Dolores for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and self esteem

For the first time I feel listened to and addressed without feeling intimidated. It’s convenient and timely and a less expensive option than in person counseling

Work with me!
