My Approach to Helping
My ultimate goal as your therapist is to create a safe place for you to express your feelings and thoughts. Trusting in someone can be very difficult and feeling safe is the foundation for trust.
I believe that all people should be treated with empathy, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness. No BlameNo Judgment.
Being a former public school teacher has given me the experience of working with children and teens. I am committed to helping our children of today navigate the many challenges of growing up. I also work with families and adults who suffer from issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of these issues may be depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, andor marital issues.
As a US Marine Corp veteran, I am keenly aware of the causes and effects of P.T.S.D. I am passionate about helping servicemen, servicewomen, and first responders with these issues.
I am grateful for my diverse experiences with working in different populations and multiple settings (Nonprofit Organizations, Life Coaching, Crisis Intervention, Early Childhood Education, and Interventions).
I am very excited to join you on your journey of healing and self-discovery.
