I have a Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I finished up my degree program in August 2016. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and also I am a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate. I have over 9 years of counseling experience working in mental health and substance abuse. My education has prepared me to counsel adults, adolescents, and children in the private and public sectors. Therapy services include: individual, group, and family counseling. I have worked with adults and adolescents who has a mental health and substance abuse diagnosis. I have also worked with adults with developmental disabilities with behavioral disorders. I have experience working with the severe and persistent mentally ill clients as well. I have experiencing working with the active duty and veterans with a dual-diagnoses. My theoretical orientation includes person-centered therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT), and motivational interviewing. In the counseling setting, the client and the counselor will use a variety of exercises, homework, readings, and therapeutic confrontations. Some of the techniques used will be engaging the client in open-ended questions, affirmations, relaxation techniques, self-monitoring, harm reduction, mood tracking etc. I am competent with CBT techniques (relaxation, self-monitoring), play therapy, self-actualization, genuineness, showing empathy, and unconditional positive regard. The aim of counseling is to reach specific goals for individual and relational growth, which are mutually agreed upon by both the client and counselor.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
