My Approach to Helping
I believe counseling is a confidential process intended to aid you in dealing with your self-doubts, life-uncertainties, and personal concerns. I believe counseling will help you better understand your behaviors, thoughts, and feelings, while you discover more effective coping skills. Consequently, counseling is a relationship between you and me. I am dedicated to helping members of the LGBTQ community who struggle with depression, anxiety, coming out, transitioning, HIV diagnosis, relationships, and social factors. I have also dedicated my life to help those who suffer from addiction issues including alcohol, drugs, sex, and gambling.
I work with individuals from 18-80-years-old. I have developed an eclectic approach to therapy that fits my holistic style. I utilize many different disciplines including cognitive-behavioral, gestalt, existential, solution-focused, and person-centered therapies. I believe that all people are capable of change and strive to become the best that they can be.
I possess the knowledge, motivation, and enthusiasm to assist you in realizing your personal goals through your past and current life experiences. Together we will work on what you think is best for you. My goal is to help you raise your awareness, to achieve your goals, and to discover your personal meaning, growth potential, and psychological health.
