I have provided psychotherapy to varied ethnic groups and diverse populations with different challenges. I have experience in the addictions field, providing both inpatient and outpatient treatment. I have interest and experience in working with males across the lifecycle, assisting males with life transitions and developing strategies for managing anger and communicating more effectively. I have provided training on working with males and I am on the Board of a Men’s Center. I have developed skills in working with couples and blended families.

I focus on developing more effective decision-making skills and coping strategies for addressing life challenges.

I’ve had several appointments so far with Trevor and I’ve felt comfortable working with him from the beginning (which can be hard for someone like me that has social anxiety). I’ve enjoyed the work we’ve done so far and am looking forward to working together in our sessions.
