I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I hold a Baccalaureate degree (BA) in Humanities and a Master’s degree (MS) in Counseling. My formal education and professional experience have prepared me to counsel individuals, couples, families and groups
My primary theoretical approach is cognitive behavior therapy. This is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. My goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind client’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel.
I am committed to helping all individuals. I understand asking for help can be challenging and uncomfortable for some. My goal is to create a space where the client can be open, vulnerable, and communicate their feelings without judgment. I work with clients from all backgrounds and cultural settings. I personally invite you to experience finding hope within yourself to navigate through life.
I invite clients to my office. It’s warm and welcoming. Our first session is a Consultation. During this session we will discuss why you have chosen to seek counseling as a solution to your needs. The next few sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs. I will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work will include and a treatment plan to follow, if you decide to continue with therapy. Therapy involves a large commitment of time and resources such as money and mental and emotional energy, so it is important to select the right therapist to work with you and your family.
