About My Clients

You just want to fulfill your goals in life and be happy, but you feel stuck. Maybe it is due to a loss, a bad relationship, poor self-image, or an illness. Nevertheless, you have strayed off course and have run out of answers on how to fix it. You're sick of the same old story and realized that you have lost yourself in the shuffle. You just need some help to get back to your true self. I can assist you in therapy with peeling away the layers of yourself that no longer serve you.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed mental health counselor, certified bereavement counselor and gerontologist, and I am completing my Ph.D. dissertation in social work. I have experience working with a diverse population made up of different genders, sexual orientations, ages, and cultures, ethnicities, races, and mental health diagnoses. I believe that therapy is meant to help people move closer to their potential. I take a psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral approach in therapy to help you break down those defense mechanisms and cognitive distortions that are blocking your happiness. After the initial assessment, the main focus turns to developing a strong therapeutic relationship and achieving your goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe change is always possible, but sometimes we all need just a little help. Human beings instinctively gravitate towards happiness, but at times feel stuck with achieving this goal. It is then wise to seek assistance from a professional who can help come up with some answers to produce positive changes in your life. I will assist you in recognizing your blind spots as well as understanding where they originated. As a result, you'll be able to move forward at an accelerated pace and no longer be stopped by them.
