One of my favorite quotes comes from Arthur Ashe, in which he said: “From what we get, we can make a living: what we give, however, makes a life”. Throughout the course of my professional career, one of my leading motives has been to help individuals that I work with feel safe, overcome stressors, gain insight and awareness, and develop healthy coping skills.
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children in different settings, such as outpatient (in the home and in a hospital), inpatient (for individuals who require stabilization), and in the school system through group, individual, and family therapy. Prior to this, I worked with individuals struggling with mental, emotional, and/or substance abuse as a Case Manager, from 2006 to when I began providing therapy in 2012.
My goal through my Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic approach is to assist people seek peace by finding stability and happiness in their lives. Remember, "peace comes from within, do not seek it without". You made the courageous decision to seek help, and I believe that I can provide support (via text, chat, phone or video) and help you begin to or continue to live a meaningful life.
