Embracing healing and wellness is key to maximizing your potential. Serving as a therapist and educator, I help clients understand the underlying factor(s) contributing to unresolved issues within their personal & professional lives. My goal is to provide a holistic approach to treatment by assessing the individual's environment as well as their mental, physical, and spiritual well being. The whelm of my practice has been demonstrated in both psychiatric and medical settings offering crisis intervention, intensive case management, and counseling to a diverse population.
Offering care to individuals, couples and families in resolving interpersonal conflict, life crisis, anxiety, depression, anger, trauma (PTSD), and substance & alcohol use. Other experiences include helping individuals address work related issues and overcoming barriers involving chronic illness, civilian adjustment from the military, and caregiver fatigue.
I pull from an array of techniques in helping clients overcome barriers and conflict including solution focus therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and client-centered therapy. "Be confident in knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel and extended hands that await to help you."
