My Approach to Helping

That you are reading this here - and hopefully - planning to contact me later, informs me that you are searching for an effective mental health professional to assist you with some psychological issues that are keeping you from becoming more successful in some important areas of your life. If so, look no further! I can help! I can hep you, if you are looking for assistance to cope with irritating thoughts and feelings, or with behaviors that are now interfering with your daily functioning!

I specialize in couple, family, and relationship issues, using the dynamic Emotionally Focused Therapy {EFT} skills and techniques that espouse a theory of close adult relationships in a way that no other theory does.

I can also help you if the assistance you are seeking is to do with depressions, anxiety, anger management, family conflict, parenting skill, teenage, career, education, and school related issues. My commitment to the helping profession obliges me to see your goal as my primary focus, and have always brought in my experience and expertise to help clients achieve the goals they set for themselves at all times.

When and if needed, I also use Cognitive and Behavior Therapy, and other evidence based psychological healing techniques to treat psychological problems. And, at all times, I strive to collaborate with my clients by making sure that we have a common understanding of the nature of their problems, or complaints, as well as how best to resolve them.

More Info About My Practice

I accept insurance reimbursement for services. If you plan to use insurance reimbursement, please make it known in advance so we can mutually agree on this prior to your first session.
