I'm very glad you are here! I have experience in providing direct mental health and behavioral counseling with individuals ages six to adult with a variety of mental health/behavioral presenting issues such as: anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, community violence, phase-of-life problems, relationship and family issues, sexuality concerns, and many more. As a standard practice, I approach the therapeutic relationship with an acute sensitivity and respect for multi/cross-cultural factors and influence.
My therapy style and approach are influenced by Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy primarily and Structural Systems Theory. I believe our belief systems strongly influence our thoughts, feelings, and actions toward many activating events in our lives and help shape us into the people we are today and the decisions we make daily.
It is extremely important to me to be able to collaborate with you to tailor my treatment and approach to what works best for you. Setting and realizing your goals is a team effort, and together we will work at your comfort level to effectively establish and achieve goals that make sense for your life.
