My greatest wish in life is to be able to help make a difference in the world; counseling is my way. I have confronted a variety of issues, and work well with complex conditions. Some include depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, adoption, self-esteem, bullying, family conflict, ADHD, defiant behaviors, anger management, and attachment concerns. My work also extends to parental support in working with their children / adolescents more effectively in communication, discipline and affection. My main desire is for all clients to know they are not alone and help them on their journey. I will adapt to meet your needs.
No two people are alike. We are all unique in some ways. I respect that and as such approach each client with an individualized (client-centered) approach. I emphasize mindfulness, strengths, coping skills and positivity. I utilize aspects of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, CBT, psychoanalysis, and some other methods. Together we'll find a way
I know it's not easy being where you're at right now, even just on this page. But you've made it this far which means you need it and I strongly urge you to reach out. If nothing else you can get a little feedback and insight. At best though, you'll find someone in me that understands, and works with you as we explore your concerns. I'm here.
