I am licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). I have a wide range of clinical experiences in many settings as well as having experience in the online therapy setting. Through my clinical experiences, I have worked with a clients presenting with a host of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family issues, substance abuse issues, among many others. My knowledge gained through my training and work experiences has assisted me in gaining the necessary understanding, empathy, and know-how to assist those in times of needs.
My experience with online counseling allows me to meet you where you are. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. You are not your problems, and these problems do not define you. These problems just happen to be a part of your life currently. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes hope to seek a different life, a more fulfilling life, a happier life. Your hope has brought you here, and that is the first step in this critical process. If you are ready to continue on this journey, I am here to support and empower you along the way.
I look forward to working with you!
