My Approach to Helping
As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I provide mental health and substance abuse outpatient services helping individuals and couples relieve pain, address struggles and improve various aspects of life. My goal is to help increase self-awareness, facilitate growth and provide tools for better coping, functioning, and problem resolution. I want my clients to lead to more meaningful and productive lives and have an increased level of functioning. I am known to be supportive, direct, genuine, empathic and solution-focused. The therapy modalities I use are all evidence-based and are often integrated and individualized.
I am experienced in working with individuals from diverse ethnic and faith backgrounds, of all age groups, having various needs. Although I have worked with a variety of issues my areas of expertise include Women\'s and Adolescent Issues, Couples Therapy, Anxiety, DepressionMood Disorders, Dual Diagnosis, GriefBereavement, and Suicidal Ideation.
