About Me

I am a License Professional Counselor with over 20 years of experience working in helping professions. I have a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. I’ve had an opportunity to work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar disorder and psychotic disorders to name a few.

Generally speaking, my theoretical approach will be Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. This doesn’t mean I don’t incorporate other therapeutic approaches. You’re an individual therefore I don’t attempt to force a particular framework.

I am an active listener who enjoys supporting clients with self-discovery and development of personal goals. It’s amazing how beneficial it can be to speak with someone unbiased, nonjudgmental and eager to be supportive. I’ve had a client tell me they wish they could carry me in their back pocket. This was in relation to the thought provoking questions and encouragement I provide to those I work with. It’s amazing being a part of a process where people learn, grow and develop based on their standards and ideas of success. You know your life better than anyone else. Sometimes as humans, we need assistance in realizing this. I look forward to being a part of that process if given the opportunity.

Take care in the meantime.

I feel extremely supported by my new counselor Kenya and I really feel like she understands me and I feel a comfort after our sessions. I do wish sessions could be longer but other than that and with living in the time of COVID-19 I couldn’t think of a better way to support my mental health than with a platform like this.
