I am a licensed professional clinical counselor in Nevada with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, counselor and employee assistance program specialist. I have worked with a wide range of population including military and veterans, adolescents, adults, geriatrics and individuals who may just need that extra motivational push for empowering themselves. I helped those who are in blended families, workplace issues, end of life concerns and hospice, communication problems, as well as self worth and confidence.
My therapy style is open and approachable. Honesty and respect comes with no judgement which is paramount to establish our therapeutic relationship. My approach is client-centered integrated with CBT, DBT, and EFT practices. Our treatment plan will be designed with a solution-focused based approach and will have the flexibility to be revised if needed.
Let us connect, let us find solutions to live a more fulfilling life. Let us embrace what is and what can become. I look forward to working together!
