About My Clients

Have you been struggling with Anxiety and Depression? Maybe a past history of Trauma? Having day to day stress related situations related to the pandemic? Or just some adjustment to life transitions? I can help you figure out what's next. I take the objective approach in listening to your story. My practice philosophy as I learned early on in my career is to treat others with compassion and show support. Treating others with dignity and respect as we walk this path together.

My Background and Approach

My specialties are with Stress, Anxiety, Addictions, Trauma and abuse, and Depression. I also have experienced in: Intimacy-related issues , Career difficulties , Coping with life changes , Compassion fatigue , Co-morbidity , Codependency , Drug and Alcohol Addiction , Guilt and Shame , Isolation/Loneliness , Life Purpose , Men's Issues , Military and Veterans Issues , Mood Disorders , Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks , Posttraumatic Stress , Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) , Smoking/Vaping Cessation , Social Anxiety and Phobia , Workplace Issues , and Young Adult Issues. I mainly use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help treat mood/anxiety disorders & trauma- and stress-related disorders. I am Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained which can aid in trauma recovery for those clients that have PTSD. Other approaches I may use are Client-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Trauma-Focused Therapy. IFS Informed and Ego-State

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My philosophy is “treat others the way they prefer to be treated” with dignity and respect. Despite the stigma that still exists in our society today, I think we forget that we are all human. I was raised from humble beginnings and we didn't have much but each other in the neighborhood. I tend to focus more on how the person is perceiving their own worldview, as this is the base of the cognitive model. We are not our thoughts. We can learn how to improve our self-talk and be more inline with our goals in our life. Our past doesn't dictate where we are going in our future. We have the power to stop the cycles of intergenerational trauma and learn from it. My treatment approach is a more Humanistic and Person-Centered.
