About My Clients

My clients bring forth any number of issues, from depression, anxiety, and mood problems to relationship problems to coping with being a member of a marginalized community (the LGBT community has a special place in my heart). My sincere interest is in helping my clients to achieve a balanced life with a sense of being happy and whole. No matter what is happening in your life, we can figure out what things need to be addressed in order to create a change for the positive.

My Background and Approach

I have a master's degree in counseling psychology from LSUS. I have a firm understanding of non-monogamous/open relationships as well as an interest in serving the LGBT community. In therapy, my focus tends toward a cognitive-behavioral approach. This allows me to assist my clients in changing the way they think about, and thus experience, their world and their relationships. This can foster a new sense of control over their experiences, and help instill balance and satisfaction in their lives. Together we can work toward reframing your world in a way that promotes happiness. No matter what is happening in your life, we can figure out what things need to be addressed in order to create a change for the positive. We can take a fresh look at your experience and and design a new approach that will help you begin to heal and feel better.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My own mental health experiences with panic disorder and anxiety have led me to the life's work I enjoy today. I feel that everyone experiences mental health issues from time to time, just as we often have physical issues that require our attention. I don't feel that anyone should be judged for what they are experiencing or what they may have gone through in life, nor now well they are able to cope with it. I believe each person's life is unique to the individual and there is no "one size fits all" to how one lives or what makes one happy. My personal belief is that immersing myself in a more inclusive and diverse world makes me a better and more balanced person. I have no room in my heart for discrimination of any kind and encourage my friends and my clients to be their most authentic selves as they go through this world. I would enjoy hearing from you and exploring the possibilities of what a full and balanced life looks like for you - as well as helping you achieve it!
