Are you looking for someone to talk to about your mental health because you are not comfortable with disclosing to family and friends? Are you needing guidance about self-esteem, productivity, or life purpose? Are you experiencing feelings or emotions that you are unsure of what they could mean? I can talk to you about them and provide education and tools. Have you experienced a traumatic event or a personal loss that you have not recovered from? You need clarity and support to move forward. Are you a parent looking for assistance or guidance for your child? I can help you with any of these issues.
I work with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, growing pains, parenting problems, and career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, emotional abuse, and addiction. I enjoy helping people achieve wellness, mentally and physically. Whether it be clinical or a specific personal attribute, I enjoy assisting others. I have internship, work, and research experience with at-risk teens and adults. Meeting people where they are mentally, emotionally, or spiritually is a matter that I take pride in.
My counseling style is warm, interactive, and person-centered. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic, and systems focused. I will tailor our conversations and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I meet you where you are, literally!
I am looking forward to working with you!
