About My Clients

Thank you for choosing to explore a new way of tackling life’s challenges. Reaching out can be an overwhelming step. It is important to remember that you possess more bravery than you realize and more strength than you feel. Your courage is greater than you might imagine. I reject the notion of a one-size-fits all approach and instead focus on exploring ideas and thoughts to create a plan that is tailored to your unique needs and circumstances. We will work together for positive change.

My Background and Approach

I use a multi-theoretical approach utilizing various techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, Solution -Focused Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Person-Centered approach. The counseling process is centered on you as an individual, recognizing that what works for one person may not work for you and your circumstances. The goal is to empower you to navigate life’s challenges, whether it is issues related to Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Anger Management, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, Substance Abuse, Bipolar Disorders, Schizophrenia, Crisis Intervention, Suicide, Women’s Wellness, Self-esteem and Self-image issues, Stress, Social Skills, Relational Issues, and Employment and Career related issues. My dedication and commitment is to help you overcome whatever challenges you have and to achieve your goals in a “Judge-Free” zone of compassion and empowerment. I look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your journey of self-discovery, healing, and personal growth.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a passionate advocate for Mental Health Awareness. My mission is to break down the negative stigma surrounding mental health and emphasize the importance of seeking help and treatment. Empowering individuals to seek help and creating a better understanding of what mental health truly is in a society of negative stigmas and misinformation is power for positive change that will facilitate an amazing and beneficial outcome for both the individual and the communities we live in. “If you change nothing, nothing changes.” ~Dr. Joyce Brothers~
