I have been a therapist for 20 years and have treated adult clients with mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma, as well as dual diagnosis, substance abuse, and problem gambling. I have also seen adolescents in treatment for substance abuse and problem gambling issues. I believe it is important for the client to feel secure and at ease in a supportive therapeutic environment, without judgment, and that it is necessary to empower the client to resolve the issue and live his or her best life.
I strongly emphasize the relational match between therapist and client so that the client is best understood. I utilize various evidence-based therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to make therapy a better fit with each client. I strive to help my clients find the rewards of wellness.
We are living in a difficult time with the COVID-19 pandemic, call for support and help with your anxiety, depression, and any other concerns you may have. It is important to take good care of ourselves and be well physically, mentally, and spiritually. Please let me know if you would like to talk about it. I look forward to speaking with you.
