My Approach to Helping
"I don't accept you, I celebrate you." -Ann Currier
It is my mission to use a supportive, holistic, and non-conventional approach to assist individuals and families to heal and succeed in their everyday lives. The wonderful experiences I have encountered over the years have shown me valuable skills and strategies that can be used to teach and help you find ways to reach your personal goals. Working with many issues that include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, dissociative identity disorder, and personality disorders with specializations in Schizophrenia, LGBTQ, and transgender populations. It is my belief that using a “the 'Doom and gloom'” outlook hinders; the healing process and instead sessions are much more productive with outstanding results when positivity is used in combination with experience, strategies, techniques, and acceptance. Understanding that those who care for people with Schizophrenia need assistance in getting through the process is one of the strengths I bring with my experience.
As an ally and an advocate of the LGBTQ community for over 25 years my goal is to assist with any and all aspects of coming out at work, school, andor family. It is my commitment to transgender clients to assist in all aspects of the transition, from beginning to end. I have 7 years of experience assisting people with hormone replacement therapy, top surgery, gender corrective surgery, as well as any other aspects within the community.
It is my hope to have the honor of assisting you with your counseling needs. My purpose in life is to help others heal and succeed creating a stronger and healthier community.
