About me

Life is full of challenges, but being happy shouldn’t be one of them, and feeling like you are alone shouldn’t be another. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor with over sixteen years of experience helping people overcome some of life’s biggest challenges. I have experience in job and career development, disability adjustment and coping, addictions, relationships, anger management, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I have a direct, solution-focused approach and take pride in being non-judgmental and accepting. I consider it my responsibility to help my patients develop coping skills to address their problems.

Counseling provides a therapeutic relationship where you can explore issues and work towards personal growth and healing. It presents an opportunity to negotiate obstacles and find healthy coping skills that lead to healthier decisions. It gives you the opportunity to learn new ways of thinking and behaving that helps you find peace and happiness.

I use several approaches, including cognitive-behavior therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, acceptance, commitment therapy, and brief therapy techniques.
It takes courage to seek help, and I want to congratulate you on taking that first step.
I look forward to working with you.

I’ve only just recently started working with Vivian, but I feel she has an understanding of my personality.

Vivian has been great so far. Very kind, helpful and understanding. After about an hour phone call I felt alot better and it was probably the best I had felt in months. She found multiple different ways to help, things for me to do and active ways to help myself. I've been in therapy before and Vivian is so much better than any therapist I've had before.

Work with me!
