My Approach to Helping
I am an experienced Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a demonstrated history of working in the mental health care industry. Skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma, Group Therapy for substance abuse, Crisis Intervention, Family Therapy, and Case Management. I have a background as a healthcare services professional with a Master of Science (MS) focused in Marriage and Family TherapyCounseling from University of Phoenix.
I have a very empathetic approach to listen while providing unconditional positive regard with each member's issues and concerns. I like to help challenge each member's thoughts and feelings to help identify a better understanding how it's affecting their life's functioning that keeps them firmly positioned in their current state. I like to be down-to-earth, humorous and incorporate member's lived experiences to demonstrate the adverse effects of mental illness along with possible outcomes with evidence-based skills developed in therapy.
