I am an international therapist and have worked in the mental health field for over nineteen years and have been a licensed mental health counselor and Doctor of Clinical Psychology for eleven years. Additionally, I have collaborated with clients of all ages, cultures, Nationalities and from all social classes dealing with a wide range of issues.
My experience is vast as I have worked with the following: neuro-psychiatric, suicidal ideation/attempts, LGBTQIA, PTSD, anger management, grief/loss, trauma, abuse, relationship issues, school counseling, juvenile justice, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression, personality disorders, domestic violence, crisis intervention, codependency, and group/family/individual therapy.
Moreover, I work with clients to formulate and modify realistic, individualized treatment goals. I will track your improvement and identify either an increase or decrease of desired feelings, behaviors, and thoughts.
My therapeutic approach is wholistic and multi-theoretical. I utilize an amalgamation of approaches which are psychodynamic, dialectical behavioral, cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, rational-emotive, existential, client-centered, Jungian, mindfulness and motivational.
Furthermore, my therapy style is warm, inviting, non-judgmental, honest, and always confidential. I treat everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Encouraging dialogue and reflective thinking is paramount in my sessions.
You have done yourself a great service by seeking help! We all need help in life and deserve a listening ear and undivided attention. I would love to be your therapist and together, we will manifest amazing results!
