I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 20+ years of experience in mental health and education. I have worked with clients from many walks of life and with a wide variety of issues such as depression, anger management, autism, sexual identity, relationship issues, and parenting issues just to name a few. I would say my "style" is to the point. Building a relationship is of the upmost importance but I believe it is also important to identify what the issues are. When it comes to working on those issues I like to be straight forward about them. I draw from several theoretical approaches (cognitive, behavioral, humanistic and psychoanalytic) but also consider myself, overall, an integrative therapist.
My core values, when it comes to counseling, begin with confidentiality. I believe everyone should have access to counseling and that it should be no concern of others considering one’s therapy (within the limits of confidentiality). I believe that at some point in time, in any of our lives, counseling may help. I also believe that people should be able to be who they are and pursue their dreams without judgment or persecution from others. I hope to offer my services to someone that can benefit from our interactions.
I look forward to meeting you.
