I am a therapist specializing in adult mental health and addiction disorders. I have 9 years of experience providing individual, family, group, and couples therapy. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient environments.
My mission is to be used by God to help others reach their highest potential and purpose in life; to represent and teach tolerance, respect, and harmony; and to promote social and economic justice.
I believe that all people regardless of race, culture, age, gender, religion, physical or mental disability, and sexual orientation are entitled to basic rights and fair, humane treatment. I believe that all members of society should have the same basic rights, protections, opportunities, obligations, and social benefits.
My practice is governed by the belief that you are a valuable human being. You have the right to express your ideas and opinions openly and honestly. You have the right to direct and govern your life. You have the right to stand up for yourself without anxiety and make choices that are good for you. You have the right to change your mind. You have the right to not be liked by everyone. You have the right to be wrong. You have the right to make requests and refuse them without feeling guilty. You have the right to ask for information. You have the right not to be responsible for others’ behaviors, actions, feelings, or problems.
