My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Master Social Worker, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and Behavioral Science Professional. I have specialized training in Chemical Dependency and Addiction disorders.
I work in alliance with patients and families facing addiction and mental health issues. I work with many behavioral and mental health disorders such as: obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, depression and other mood disorders.
I use evidence-based therapeutic interventions to equip clients with skills for overcoming addiction, anxiety, depression, and anger. I help clients get out of thinking traps that lead to dysfunctional thinking and behaviors. I provide clients with ongoing strategies for overall mental health and wellness.
I believe in a collaborative, holistic, and evidence-based approach to treatment. Using proven methods backed by research, clients are able to achieve a healthier and more fulfilling life.
